IP rotation of multiple A(AAA) records

Hi,

have any other users attempted to set up "poor man's load balancing" by creating multiple A's for the same hostname?

The desired effect is for the DNS service to return the IPs in essentially random, or rotating, order when a lookup is performed.

After trying to set this up myself with 2 entries, I kept getting the 2 IPs in the same order (from 3 machines). I was just curious if anyone else tried the same effect. Any feedback from Hover as to whether your DNS platform will ever have this feature?
