As you can see below part of the solution is to name the voice correctly.

Not precisely -- the notes I want smaller are in a chord.  If you're
singing one to a part, then they should be ignored; if two or more to a
part, then they could be sung.

I tried that, but it changes the sizes of *all* the notes not just the
one that's meant to be changed,
This cheats a little (I moved the Bb to the tenor voice) but works (on 2.4.2) suggesting you need to put the small note(s) in a separate voice:
Bassus = \relative c {
<< % %{ bes'2 } { \context Voice = Bass \set fontSize = #-5 g'2 \unset fontSize }
  >>  f4 d |

Tenor = \relative c' {
         <bes d >2 c4 d |

\score {
  \context Staff { \clef "F" <<
    \context Voice = Tenor {\voiceOne\Tenor}
    \context Voice = Bass {\voiceTwo\Bassus}

Thanks. This helped me figure out how to get small cue notes with regular sized notes for the instrument on the part.
