Esper Battlemage Discussion

Rule 615.7. Some prevention effects generated by the resolution of a spell or ability refer to a specific amount of damage--for example, "Prevent the next 3 damage that would be dealt to target creature or player this turn." ...
So this is the kind of effect of Esper Battlemage. Continuing on:
If damage would be dealt to the shielded creature or player by two or more applicable sources at the same time*, the player or the controller of the creature chooses which damage the shield prevents.
You can choose how much commander damage/soldier damage you wish to prevent. You distribute the shield

So my friends and I are playing pauper edh. My commander is Esper Battlemage. My friend swings in with two creatures - his commander, Daru Warchief, and another soldier. I tap my commander to prevent two damage.
Since Esper Battlemage doesn't target a creature with its damage prevention, how can I tell if I prevented his commander damage or just his little soldier?
