I'm fairly certain that pbs defaults to using the fifo scheduler and I
can't see anything being specified otherwise in the ./configure
command in the .spec file for the pbs distributed rpms.

I'd also recommend checking out the PBS mini-HOWTO at
http://www.fysik.dtu.dk/CAMP/pbs.html as the admin guide can be a bit
much at times. Also I would highly recommend subscribing to the PBS
users mailing list (Send an email to majordomo at pbspro.com with
"subscribe pbs-users" in the body of the message).
