working on Geoprocessing tool, part of the process is saving pdf 

cant find how to change the multi ring buffer symbology drawing order when working with the

"UniqueValueRenderer

I really try to avoid splitting the polygons to individual layers 

i need the outcome to look like 2 and not 1 
using only the outline of the polygon with no color inside

If you are wanting to change the default draw order, that is based on the order the features are saved in the data table.  If you use the sort GP tool, and sort the FC on Area field, Descending, then all the smaller polygons will draw on top of the larger ones as they will be at the bottom of the table.

Though, not sure this will help with multirings.  might have to explode first.

Sorting by Descending on the buffer field solved it
