Yikes.   That would drive me insane! :-)

The frontend is told which server to connect to for the db, but it reads the

Well, my first suggestion would be to flatten out your network.  You do have
another option, though.  There's no GUI for this (that I'm aware of), but
you can add a 'MasterServerIP' row in the settings table for each of your
frontends.  That will override the global one.
