Most n-tuple hashes used as load balancing discriminants tend to use 
src/dst ip, protocol and src/dst port.  Anycast TCP works well for tcp 
sessions which only involve a couple of exchanges back and forth, i.e. 
it's generally fine for short-lived dns-over-tcp conversations, even if 
there are ecmp / lag links somewhere along the path.
