[Unbound-users] Forward zone query distribution

Hi,

I've got a question how queries are distributed to forward
resolvers.

In this example, I've defined that all queries, which can't be
answered from the cache, are forwarded to Google's DNS servers:

forwared-zone:
 name: "."
 forward-addr: 8.8.8.8
 forward-addr: 8.8.4.4

How are the queries distributed between 8.8.8.8 and 8.8.4.4? Are
all queries going to 8.8.8.8 because it's the first one, are they
distributed via round-robin or is the one with the lowest
response time getting the most of the queries?
