I cannot point you to a particular source, but I have researched NTRP using every source on the internet because I captained 3 teams this year, and I do not believe that matches against benchmark players count any more or less than matches against other players. A benchmark rating is one based on playoff results.

It is possible to beat 3.5 benchmark players and lose to 3.0 benchmark players because those benchmark ratings are based on results from last year. A 3.0 player who is rapidly improving could have a higher dynamic rating that is not reflected in his 3.0 rating that is visible to the public.
