Simplified: "intendant" question

I'm writing a little blurb on stroke precedence in Gregg (how you should write "tn" first if there's a choice between that and "nt" for example), and I wanted to use the word "intendant" as an example. The Anniversary dictionary logically illustrates my point and has n-tn-tn. Unfortunately, the Simplified dictionary acts like the d doesn't exist and has "n-tn nt". Is there some guiding principle behind this, or should this might as well be a brief form?

Thanks :)
