How much does your summer internship at another consulting firm matter for re-recruiting

Let's say you are a junior who got a summer internship at a reputable consulting firm. How much does it matter what the name of that shop is as it relates to re-recruiting targeting MBB?

Like does an internship at EYP vs Deloitte vs Accenture vs S& really matter? Or is it more important that you just get an internship there anyway. Assuming target school, solid gpa, etc

the more reputable the shop, the better. EYP/S&/OW/LEK are pretty close in terms of prestige i think. Accenture is a tier below the others. I have no idea how deloitte is viewed since they eliminated the S&O designation
