I know that I can use VIP with any software (corosync, Linux HA...) But
this will not explain the origin of the issue I am facing :)

Even if I use a VIP I can reproduce the issue :
If the first VIP (so the nameserver 1) is down, I'll have the same
drawbacks. As the resolver will timeout before falling back to the second

Right ?
