I have also looked at these factors..
It seems and this is only a conjecture that
Let a1<a2
then if p|a1
p|a2 => a2=p*a1. (note <= is not true)
A few examples

17|phi(272,7) and 17|phi(16,7) also 16*17=272
113|phi(1582,7) and 113|phi(14,7) also 14*113=1582
59|phi(1711,7) and 59|phi(29,7) also 29*59=1711
5|phi(2500,7) and 5|phi(500,7) also 5*500=2500
109|phi(2943,7) and 109|(27,7) also 27*109=2943
