I think you 2 are talking about different things.

1) Permissions priority - SharePoint works on a "greatest permission" model -
if a user has 2 different permissions from 2 different ACLs, the greatest (e.g.
administrator in your example) will be applied. This is the same model as
Windows filesystem.
2) Permissions inheritance - this refers to permissions applied at the
"parent" of a heirarchy being applied to all "children"
