IIRC this particular test was constructed to have guests
A and B fit in one NUMA node, with guest C in the other
NUMA node.

With schednuma, guest A ended up on one NUMA node, guest
B on the other, and guest C was spread between both nodes.

Only migrating when there is plenty of free space available
means you can end up not doing the right thing when running
a few large workloads on the system.
