"split" is necessary to split the pool between the primary server and 
the backup server.  Modifying "split" will not prevent the backup 
server from answering.  You might try setting "load balance max 
seconds" really high, but I still don't think it will do what you 
want.  Basically, the ISC server isn't designed for fail-only without 
load balancing.
