The only log message is that it's marking the server zombie. Until
it's marked zombie, it *might* be alive. The reason it's marked zombie
is because the home server hasn't responded to the packet in the last
So... it's pretty simple.
This *can* be caused by the home server selectively responding to
packets. i.e. it responds to 1/2 of the packets, and ignores the rest.
This could make the state "flip" back and forth between zombie && alive.

Look at the statistics using "radmin". You can look at individual
home servers, and stats for received / sent packets. You might need to
install the git "v2.1.x" branch for accounting stats, though.
