Comment 1 Mike McLean 2003-05-23 00:44:27 UTC
This only affects preexisting persistent connections.  After failover, try
connecting from a *different* machine.  After the persistence timeout, even the
previously connected machine will get routed elsewhere.

If it makes sense for another machine to take over a persistent connection, then
you don't really need persistence.  If there is a valid reason to use
persistence then you probably want the observed behavior.
