I'd think that under ideal conditions, the load (weight) should be split pretty equally between the bearings, with maybe a slight bias toward the inner larger bearing. Adding a spacer would move the center of weight outboard, loading the outer bearing more.
That said, with no more weight that we're looking at, (maybe 1500 pounds on each end= 750 pounds each wheel?) that it's not really going to make a huge difference. Maybe a reduce the bearing life a little. The major stress is probably going to be on the wheel lugs anyway.
