There really is no "right" or "wrong" answer here, it really comes down to the specifics of the situation including how the parents handled the children when they were together as a couple, who is the more appropriate parent and the schedule of each of the parents as well as of the children.
The father certainly has the ability to get more time with his daughters. If he took care of the children a lot while they were together, if he has a good bond with them, takes proper care of them now and has plenty of time available for the children, he would certainly have a compelling argument for greater time.
This is a rather complex issue, please let me know if anything requires clarification.
