I was looking for rules regarding VMWare ESXi NIC failover, virtual and/or physical adapters. Is there a set of rules that gets used when choosing the new NIC to be used from a bunch of passive ones? Are there several possible scenarios of this where several aspects might play in? Or is just the first NIC in the list simply taken?

It depends on how you have created the vSwitch with the NICs, and Teaming and Failover policy.

Only applies to physical nics connected to the vSwitch not virtual network interfaces in the VMs.

your server may also have its own failover / teaming feature
