There is some background stuff that roughly says "need more?", and if so 
fires off the DNS lookup.

Probably not directly, but it wouldn't be hard for the server code to use 
more than one address if that was desired.  Maybe it should be "servers" 
rather than "server".  Do you have an example where that would be useful?

If you don't have lots of servers, you probably don't want to switch to using 
"pool" since that path will probably keep banging away at the DNS looking for 
more servers.


These are my opinions.  I hate spam.
