I'm going to say due to convection loops that are inevitable here that the oxygen is "well mixed" and that they, therefore, go out almost simultaneously.

Edit: I actually only posted this, because it hadn't been picked. I'm really of the mind that the warm, oxygen depleted air will rise and snuff out the taller candle first.
