As Lance Tatman pointed out, load-balancing only works between
circuits joining the same two switches. This would certainly be a
factor in planning what kind of wide-area connectivity to use to join
two groups of switches. A single 400Mb/s aggregate might perform much
better than a pair of 200Mb/s aggregates.
Better performance, but worse reliability?
The single 400Mb/s is, after all, a single point of failure, no?
