tire pressure front/rear question

As someone who had to replace the tranfer case on wifes 2008 X3 at about 43k miles, I have a question. I have seen it said that the front and rears must have the same diameter. My question is the front tire recommended pressure is 32 lbs and the rears are 35 lbs.
Wouldn't that mean the front tire would have a smaller rolling circumference since it has less pressure. Wouldnt this put additional strain on the transfer case. Would having the same pressure front to rear put less strain on the transfer case?? Are most following the recommended tire pressures or using same tire pressure front and rears?
