"man 8 mount" suggests that mount does choose the correct order to use, because if you look at the -F option to fork a separate mount process for each filesystem, it says "This will do the mounts on different devices or different NFS servers in parallel. This has the advantage that it is faster; also NFS timeouts go in parallel. A disadvantage is that the mounts are done in undefined order. Thus, you cannot use this option if you want to mount both /usr and /usr/spool." The implication is therefore that if you don't use the -F option, mount will get the order right.

It was the man page that led to my question really - I wondered what
happened at boot time. Are they mounted in parallel or in series?

The mount command used in /etc/rc.d/rc.sysinit for "Mounting local filesystems" is:

mount -a -t nonfs,nfs4,smbfs,ncpfs,cifs -O no_netdev

So, no -F there.
