As bind ignores duplicate records
dreamer IN A x.x.x.x
dreamer IN A x.x.x.x
and thus it is impossible to load balance based on the specs of individual machines, would 
proportionally multi homing a machine and thus having many records with differing ip 
addresses to balance it out?
machine one, daul athlon 800 2gig ram (main ftp server)
assign this machine ten ips
machine two, p200 128 ram (extra server)
assign this one ip

then list A records for all ten ips and thus make machine one ten times more frequently 
accessed than machine two.
Is this a viable trick or is there a better way to implement load balancing?
