I would think using a fixed order would be a really bad thing, causing
overload of the first server in line.  Did I misunderstand you?  How about
doing a script (say in perl, it has random numbers) that randomly picks
the server from a list? That way, the list could even be weighted, so as
to allow for greater or lesser machine resources (like net access).
