And to answer one of your questions. I have read that 62% of the power is supplied to the rear wheels. Another source said 68% so not sure which number is correct.
I too have heard conflicting reports:

a) the x drive below highway speeds is a 40-60 system (fw-rw)
b) The system is capable of sending 50% power/100% torque to each axle
c) At highway speeds, the system establishes 50% power/100% torque to the rear axle.
