At current, the rollover policy is for 50% of total xp earned, with an exception made for a painless pk, as noted in the '+Help PvP' file.
A painless PK pays out an additional 25% of total earned xp, for a total of 75%. In part this is a reflection that people put in the time and effort, and to make rolling into a new pc easier to handle in the event of pvp/pk.
