There probably isn't a built in "load sensor" that directly reflects what you want.  You could:
1)Write your own load sensor that reflects your notion of which node is more preferable then use that for the load_formula.
2)Change the queue_sort_method to seqno and give the queues on hostA a lower sequence number.  You could add a 
np_load_avg based load_threshold that will stop jobs being assigned to a host if it is overloaded.
