Default Chest Development and Back Strength

Throwing this out there (as BTB would say).

I was talking with a buddy who is not happy with his chest development, even though he is a big, strong guy. He has been brainstorming ways to push for more chest growth (he has a big bench).

After our conversation, it occurred to me that I have about three friends who are in the same position: they are all ~5'10", 255-275#, have wide backs, with big arms/shoulders and thick torsos.

It made me wonder: In their instances, does having such a strong base for pressing (back) with strong arms/shoulders reduce the amount of work the pecs have to do and, therefore, make chest development more difficult?

If that is the case, are there specific exercises people would suggest to alleviate the imbalance?
