It sounds like using 'defer' may allow pf + pfsync to handle the issues resulting from asymmetric routing of packets, as long as the asymmetry is fully contained within the pfsync'd hosts. I apologize if I gave too much airtime to the pf + pfsync aspects of what I was trying to resolve, we largely worked around those by enabling carp preemption. --Kyle
