Alot of the "older" plans I've seen use place cap in parallel with the NST
and the spark gap in series with the primary. The other way, (with the two
reversed) as far as I know is just a way to help protect the NST by
lowering the chance of high frequency from the cap to filter back into the
secondary winding of the NST. Either way would work, the latter is just
another safety precaution. As far as "first notch quenching", I'm a little
new at this too.
