So, does that mean for every attempt, a server tagged with iburst will be 
sent 8 packets if it wasn't reachable on the prior attempt?  (I know of one 
server right now I can't reach, am I sending 8 packets in bursts 
periodically, or only in response to the first coming back when he does get 
back online?)
