Bind9 weighted load balancing

Hello everyone,

There is a round robin resolving mechanism in bind9 where the server
chooses different records to resolve for each request, but is there a way
to assign weights so that the server resolves with different probabilities?

All I could find about the topic was this old mail from the archive:
It says you can put duplicate records for increasing the weight, however it
also says that bind9 does not seem to support this.

host    IN A
        IN A
        IN A
        IN A

Thank you,
Alperen Yılmaz
