Round robin works fine if they are all up.  Otherwise one goes down, 
you cache the name, and you keep trying to reach the downed server 
until it comes up or the name times out of the cache.  Of course if you 
have 4 servers being round robin-ed then this only affects 25% of all 
queries :)


Why even use a different name?  Round robin works fine, and if all the
registries participate in a cross-mirroring program, then all would be
well, no?  If you mirror correctly, it doesn't much matter _which_ host
you hit.
