It depends on the classification in the rule.  "Classification:"  the
entries match up with classification.config, which, in turn assigns them
a number (1,2,3) thusly, your priority.

Subject: [Snort-users] Syslog Priority Classification

Hello all, I am attempting to determine the way Snort classifies alerts
as Priority 1, Priority 2 or Priority 3 when it is logging to syslog.  I
need to be able to validate what is getting reported to me with swatch,
but I can't do that until I know what the criteria is for Priority 1

If someone could point me in the right direction I would be greatly

Thank you,
