Unless things are written correctly (perhaps incorrectly) this will not
work. If the client does a name lookup when starting up, and then keeps
using that same IP address it might work, but if the client does a resolv
request each time it needs to access the server, then you could request a
keyblock from one server, answer to another... an interesting twist on
things :) Itwould probably be FAR easier to simply tell people to try
out another server.
