They probably write to the same location in the policy section of the registry. You can verify this by looking at the GP registry location here: http://gpsearch.azurewebsites.net/

If they do, the last policy setting to write would win.

If you open GPMC, click on OU where both polices are applied
Now in right side check link order
The Policy with higher link order (2) will apply 1st
The policy with lower link order (1) will apply last and this is the winning policy

Exception to this rule:
If policy on link order 2 is set to enforced, then it will win, but I don't think you have enforced any policy
