Sims usually favor mastery up to 60% or so, and then crit starts to overtake mastery (1-3% deviation...which is basically negligible).
Except this has nothing to do with ST vs AoE switching from crit to mastery and vise verse.
Oops, misread the question.
Just did some fresh sims using my stats:
1 target: Mastery 5.34, Crit 5.74 = 0.40 DPS difference per point, advantage Crit
3 targets: Mastery 7.48, Crit 8.12 = 0.64 DPS difference per point, advantage Crit
6 targets: Mastery 12.71 , Crit 10.50 = 2.21 DPS difference per point, advantage Mastery
6 targets + 16.5% crit: Mastery 15.28, Crit 13.33 = 1.95 DPS difference per point, advantage Mastery
6 targets + 40% crit: Mastery 17.35, Crit 12.58 = 4.77 DPS difference per point, advantage Mastery
So...short answer... no idea why
Mastery sims higher than Crit for AoE, it just sims that way.
