Actually most browsers (and certainly most resolver libs) cache as
IPs as are returned by the query. So, the browser will have the
IPs necessary to reach the website, and if one doesn't work it will
the next one.
Which browsers are those that work in this way?!
If this is the case, then you may also have a session persistence
If the browser switches IP addresses between queries, the other web
may be asked to respond, in which case, you will not be able to store
in the web server, and will need to store it in the backend - and
requests - not visits.
