Thanks for the info. I just queried the DNS for rotate.aprs2.net several 
times in a row, and the list was sorted into a different and seemingly 
random order each time. I did come across a page that indicated that using 
"round robin" for more than 5 servers could cause problems, but it was a bit 
vague. I also read somewhere that UDP DNS messages should be less than 512 
bytes or they would be truncated - hi! I should get a good book on DNS one 
day.
