[Unbound-users] Round Robin DNS

Hi all,

I want to set up a round robin DNS for load-balancing purposes. I have
a local zone as follows:

local-zone: "www.foo.com." static
local-data: "www.foo.com. 2 IN A 172.16.25.200"
local-data: "www.foo.com. 2 IN A 172.16.25.1"
local-data: "www.foo.com. 2 IN A 172.16.25.5"

Using nslookup, I always get the fixed order reply : .200, .1, .5

Is there a way I can configure Unbound to return a randomized/round-robin list?

PS: I went through the discussion at
http://www.unbound.net/pipermail/unbound-users/2009-August/000724.html
, but am posting to check if there is a work-around available.

Thanks!
Cheers,
Nipun
