I'm not sure exactly what you mean. By default each domain will get a
fair share of the CPU on which it runs -- if N domains are all
CPU-bound then each will get 1/N of the CPU. Domains which are woken
by an incoming event (eg. network packet or key press) should get run
with reasonably low latency.

By bogged down, do you mean that interactive response suffers? What is
the busy domain doing -- just CPU-intensive work and no I/O?
