What if the master backend is running on dual-homed or multi-homed 
server (has more than one nic card/IP address) with slaves and frontends 
able to communicate with the master backend in one hop, but with each 
other through only longer or much slower routes involving busy routers 
and extra hops?  

Does myth use DNS or some other resolver to try various address for the 
master backend  or is it locked to a single numeric IP for the master 
backend used by all slaves and frontends no matter whether better 
choices exist?
