I kind of like this page: 

  Apt-Pinning for Beginners:
    http://jaqque.sbih.org/kplug/apt-pinning.html

Though this is more of a step-by-step howto than an explanation
of how it all works.

Also, the author is talking about pinning testing and unstable to
stable, which as already noted is somewhat dubious.
