Hi: 

It all depends on how the server works. If the server only applies the
load balancing to NEW clients and not to renewals, then there really is
no problem. That really was the intent of the protocol. Also, only
broadcast packets are an issue as unicast datagrams are set to the
server in question. 

You are right. I missed that part. 

Thanks,

Lisa
