It's not a dispute, it's a dollar$ decision on behalf of Sprint and/or MFN.

"Hmmm, I'm getting paid by 6939 but not by 3356.  I'll send my traffic through 6939 by increasing my local preference to them."

Found an interesting one.  Sprint no longer has a "full" looking glass,

But it shows Sprint reaching 8059 via MFN, even with the prepends.  Is
there a Sprint/Level3 peering dispute that I'm not aware of?  Might
someone from Sprint comment on this privately?
