It's undefined, unless you define it with subpatches with signal cords 
between them (which don't need to carry meaningful data, just the 
presence of a signal connection is enough to force order):

if this diagram makes any sense at all:

[pd first
         env~ -- print 1
  |         /
[pd second
   inlet~  inlet~
           env~ -- print 2

this is documented somewhere, i think in a flanger example...
