Just tested it, it depends on the location of the mouse cursor when you release the mouse button. The guide is always appended to the page the cursor is over.

Actually, I find this a bit contraintuitive, I would have liked to see the possibility to make my line be part of _both_ pages at once, for instance, that way it is easier to keep two facing pages harmonized. This is the way PageMaker works, and I found it usefull. (BTW: yes, one can use other similar tools, for instance grids or templates for this too). Perhaps a bit off topic here? :-/

Franz is correct, but I agree with axelb that the behaviour is not intuitive. It'd be fine if the user could select both pages with Ctrl or Ctrl+Shift and then drag a guide to the whole spread. See 4705
