I have this kind of forwarders configuration. has 3ms RTT has 150ms RTT

options {
                forwarders {

Usually all queries go to but occasionally it experiences
high load which obviously has effect on SRTT.
This causes that 12% of the queries are forwarded to

I want that is used only when is down or is
experiencing really high latency.

I tried adding multiple times in forwarders section but
it didn't help.

Is there any way around this?
Any way to manually tweak SRTT per server?
