Ooh....that's a tough one.  But I'd say it would jump to bank 3, like this:
It would access xff6 and get the nop from bank 0.  Then it would access xff7
and get the jmp from bank 1.  Then it would access xff8 and get the x0 from
bank 2.  No wait...little endian storage means it would get the 00 from bank2.
then it would read from xff9 and get the x0 from bank 3.  Then it would access
xffa in bank 3 and stay there.

I think.
