Default use of factor? (just to be sure)

If a new factor is found in Prime95 - how is it going to be used then?

A factor found by either Trial factoring or P-1 factoring will save time and effort.
A Lucas-Lehmer and it's double check wont be done, the number can't be a mersenne prime.
The factor will be recorded.
