Ah, yes that explain it.

The funny thing here is that this is how I initially configured this (A
Recs) but it was suggested
that I use srv records. Since the OpenShift client do not make use of
srv records then I'll go back
to my initial configuration with A records.
At least now I understand srv records better and this will be used more
and more in the future:-)
Thank you all!

You are already using it above with host command.
# nslookup _foo.tcp
*** Can't find _foo.tcp: No answer
# nslookup _foo.tcp.example.com.
*** Can't find _foo.tcp.example.com.: No answer
This is SRV record, so you need to tell nslookup to look up SRV record,
not A or CNAME as it does by default.
# ping _foo.tcp
ping: unknown host _foo.tcp
SRV records need to be resolved first by your software and then resolved
records used to perform lookups of the SRV entry content.
Then OpenShift clients (software) need to know how to resolve SRV
record prior to
The point of this is to create a front-end to balance requests from
across a set of OpenShift brokers. Host "foo" would alternate across
the first broker
(foo1) and second broker (foo2).
connecting to the host that is pointed by the record.
If your clients don't know how to do that, you can use multiple A/AAAA
record entries to allow round-robin them.
