Longest match always wins... so provided your /22's are in the global
table, traffic will follow the path toward them before the /21 is preferred.

So, for example, if the upstream to whom you are sending the /21 doesn't
do anything about how they learn the /22 from another source, (for their
network) they will also send traffic back to you via the /22 path. This
may or may not be preferred by you, or them. I suppose that's the main
thing to think about.
