I'm not sure exactly why doctors would prefer klonopin to xanax but here is a possible reason:

Xanax has a much shorter average half-life (12hrs) than Klonopin (34hours). Xanax is considered a short-acting benzo while Klonopin is considered long-acting. Short-acting benzos are associated with more rebound anxiety and withdrawal reaction, therefore harder to get off of.

For a list of benzos, see http://www.sdh.sk.ca/rxfiles/acrobat/Cht-Psyc-Benzodiazepines.pdf

PS Make sure you have adobe acrobat reader installed. It's freeware.
