The only criteria is how these cousins are related to you.
For example, I tested my mother's brother's son to get my maternal grandfather's line. Testing my cousin's sister would not have have gotten any of my lineages.
I tested my father's brother's son to get my paternal grandfather's line. Testing this cousin's sister would not help me either.
I tested my father's sister's daughter's daughter to get my paternal grandmother's line. Here I could have tested any of my aunt's four children, or any of the children of her two daughters, but not her two sons' children.
