Starting April 1st, only two Service Center are responsible for all the I-140's, Nebraska & Texas. All I-140's are filed with Nebraska Service Center. Nebraska keeps some of the petitoins and transfers the others to Texas. The ones that NSC keeps has a receipt number starting with LIN whereas the ones that are transfered to TX has the receipt number starting with SRC. So even though the petition might be filed with NSC, chances are it might be approved sonner if it goes to TXSC. Nebraska is taking 4-5 months to approve a petition whereas TX approves it in 15-25 days.

If we do premium process, does this increase the change of rejection?

I don't see a reason why premium processing will lead to rejection. Certainly that is not the case with H-1B. Infact 2-3 years back H-1B premium processing had 0.5% higher approval rate than regular H-1B.
