Indeed BGP does select oldest-route when everything else is equal. I don't
know that router IDs even come into play anymore. Quagga/Zebra have this
behavior as well.
If you want to prefer one peer over the other you'll have to route-map with
some lower-local prefs on the lesser preferred peer. I'd think if you
wanted there are hardware/software products that work in place of your
router to more automate this task of traffic engineering but I don't have
any I'd recommend.
