I also notice that we have 4 servers listed under the name
Using "host" from bind9-host,
$ host http.us.debian.org
http.us.debian.org has address 22.214.171.124
http.us.debian.org has address 126.96.36.199
http.us.debian.org has address 188.8.131.52
http.us.debian.org has address 184.108.40.206
And if you repeat the command, you will see the DNS doing round-robin
returning the addresses in various orders. This seems great.
However, libc6 resolv+ (I think - can someone confirm who is to
blame?) goes out of its way to *sort* the list by IP number and thus
thwarts the round-robin. Aptitude (and wget, &c) *always* choose
220.127.116.11. This server must be getting beat like a red-headed
stepchild since *all* the debian update/upgrade trying
http.us.debian.org go there.
Where do I send a bug report about IP number sorting in (I presume)
