Here's Nikon's explanation on the AF-C priority selection from the "Z9 Professional Setting Guide - Sports AF Edition" manual located at

Note that it is for the Z9 so the Focus + release priority selection may not be available on your camera.

The AF-C priority selection can affect the frame rate (slow it down) during busts of photos, so Release priority mode is my choice for sports (and action) when I want/need 20fps RAW+JPEG image captures from my Z9. Used the same Release priority mode for all previous Nikon ML and DSLR cameras (be it at lower fps depending on the ability of the camera being used) that I have used for sports and action photography.

Thank you.  The link doesn’t work, I’ll see if I can find it on Nikon.
