I understand you have been trying to resolve the record by using nslookup or 
dig which returns all of the A records in the round-robin. is that true?
"Round-Robin.  authoritative name server for the name, when requested the IP 
address for that name, returns more than one RR, associating in this way 
more than one IP address to the domain name. Name servers, when queried by a 
client resolver for this domain name, return one of these IP addresses in a 
Round-Robin fashion, distributing the workload of that domain evenly among 
all the IP addresses"
