Default Way to Distribute tension across mains?

I just started stringing for the first time, and checked the tension across the mains after tying off, to find that it was inconsistent. Basically, I expect the middle two strings to ring the same note when plucked, and so on as you go out from the middle, since the two paired strings are the same length. My thought is that this can be a decent check to see if the tension needs to be redistributed so that at least the string tensions mirror each other. My first question is whether or not my theory is sound, and that different notes mean that I need to redistribute the tension. The second question is how to effectively do that. Or am I being neurotic, and the strings will even themselves out after a few hard serves?
