ELF linking question related to symbol collisions

I've got a program which links (indirectly) to two DSOs which define the 
same function.  Is it guaranteed that ld.so resolves a symbol reference 
to the topologically closest definition (from its own dependency graph), 
or will ld.so pick a definition more or less at random?
