eQuest "Heating" type Equipment Control

I'm wondering exactly how to set up a "heating" type Equipment Control in eQuest.

Specifically, I have a system with two boilers, B-1 and B-2. I'd like to set it up so that B-1 handles the entire heating load until a given threshold, after which B-1 and B-2 share it equally.

Would I set it up like so?

Also: would I be correct in assuming that the units in the "Max Load" field are MBtu/h?
