Hi All,         I would like to know the behavior of dnsmasq in the following 
scenario



PC --- Dnsmasq-as-Forwarder-------- |------ DNS-Server1 { abc.123.com ---- 
1.1.1.1, abc.123.com ---- 1.1.1.2}                                              
               |                                                             |  
                                                           
|--------DNS-Server-2  { abc.123.com ---- 1.1.1.3, abc.123.com ---- 1.1.1.4}
When PC sends the query for abc.123.com, Dnsmasq forwards queries to both 
DNS-servers. Both servers sends the reply.PC  receives only one reply with 
answer from either DNS-Server1 or DNS-Server2.  it is expected as per design. 

I was expecting the dnsmasq-forwarder  to cache the replies/answers from both 
servers( Server1's reply {abc.123.com ---- 1.1.1.1, 1.1.1.2} Server2's reply 
{abc.123.com ---- 1.1.1.3, 1.1.1.4)} .

When i checked the cache of dnsmasq-forwarder, it only caches the first reply 
from either DNS-Server1 or DNS-Server2, NOT both. 
So wondering, how to do the RoudRobin Load balancing among four 
servers(1.1.1.1/2/3/4) which serves abc.123.com. 
 i checked the code. Looks like " the after  processing first reply, the frec 
is freed, so dnsmasq can't cache the entries."
Could you explain? 
thanksS.Meenakshisundaram
