"preferred" inertial reference frame

When I say "preferred" inertial reference frame I understand:
1. One of the infinite inertial reference frames all having the same physical properties,
2. Oe of the infinite inertial reference frames having special properties.
Is there a difference between the two statements?
Thanks
