Dual submissions

What is this about?

A PhD student has excellent research results in a collaborative setting. Upon request of her supervisor, she submits their research for publication as the submitting author.

After a few weeks, the supervisor approaches the student and suggests to submit the manuscript at another journal where the submission process will be easier. The supervisor suggests they could always retract one of the two submissions if it were to be doubly accepted.

For whom is this important?
