Device naming in /dev follows standard LAN device naming except that the PPA (physical point of attachment) unit number is the socket where the card resides, not the instance. That is, for the pcelx driver, /dev/pcelx0 (or PPA 0 of /dev/pcelx) is the card in socket 0, while a card in socket 1 is /dev/pcelx1 (or PPA 1 of /dev/pcelx). See the pcelx(7D) man page.
