-C

Which is why the DNS supports multiple address records.  Clients
don't have to wait a minutes to fallover to a second address.  One
doesn't have to point all the addresses returned to the closest
data center.  One can get sub-second fail over in clients as HE
code shows.

As for the original problem.  LRU replacement will keep "hot" items in
the cache unless it is seriously undersized.
