Yeah:

(setq face-ignored-fonts '(".*-cp1251$"))

does the trick for me indeed, thanks!

When I wrote original question, I was sure I've read somewhere in the
docs that Emacs does prefer fonts with particular encoding, and then I
missed it and can't find it anymore. I wonder if it is even documented,
or did I read it somewhere else, maybe in some relevant discussion?

I mean if it's even undocumented and is not important nowadays, maybe
it's indeed better to drop it rather than bother with customizations.
And if it is to be customizable, it should probably be a fontset feature
rather than global?

Thanks,
