What about just configuring the same settings on two servers NOT in failover ?
The effect would be similar to using host statements with fixed
addresses - either server can respond (with the same address) and so
it doesn't matter that they are not in failover.
This wouldn't work with any client who is allowed more than one
address - for that you would still need to use failover.
