It's probably worth making a list of the problems that you want to
solve. The ones I can think of:
server xxx matching restrict xxx
server (1 IP address) gets moved to a new IP address
or gets turned off
get several working servers from pool
restrict for pool
server leaves pool
Pick good/near servers from pool offerings.

We have to make sure not to hammer the DNS.
Is there any point in retrying a DNS lookup before the TTL expires?
These are my opinions, not necessarily my employer's. I hate spam.
