So far we've seen two lists one in the cave presented by MIB to Sawyer the other in the lighthouse presented by Jacob to Hurley and Jack. We immediately see the two sides light and dark now manifested into these two men and they each have their lists, Jacob's in the lighthouse MIB's in the cave. I feel Jacob is researching to find the best candidates and pushing them to make the choices that will bring them to the island. MIB is more interested in spoiling Jacob's candidates "infecting" them such as Sayid and Claire.
Also is anyone else surprised that Kate isn't one of the lottery numbers? Granted I've become tired of Kate as well especially in season 5, however she has been an extremely important character since the beginning. Her life before the crash involved the numbers such as the $23,000 reward money for the man who turned her in.
