strange network

Hi all.

I have a strange problem.

I have 10 gateways in the same subnet in my network like.

Gwn 10.0.0.x
Subnet mask

 I will have like 5000 new clients behind a isc-dhcp, but each actual gateway only support 512 clients simultaneously, for that reason I need to make in any way that my DHCP server send to the client different gateways address for any new connection like round robin load balancing.

 I try at the first time put in the configuration the option like

 option routers;

 And in my DNS server make a round-robind resolv for that name like :

 router 60       IN      A
router 70       IN      A
router 80       IN      A

 But with this configuration, one client receive three gateways  instead of one.

 The is a way to do this with the dhcp or dns ?

 Like this dream :
option routers round-robin;
option routers,,;

 I’m using :
FreeBSD 6.2
BIND 9.3.3
Thanks a lot.
