reconnect failed, database down? -> sql returned ok for two times before failover

i want to configure a mysql db failover.

In my tests it seems that if the first mysql db is not reachable the 
first two authentication attempts are rejecting the user, because the 
rlm_sql module returns ok and no failover will happen. The module 
recognised that the db is not reachable but returns ok.
On the thrid attempt the server switched to the redundant second db.

Is this the deliberate behavior?

Is there a way to switch direct to second db if the first db fails or 
are the two rejects mandantory before failover?

Thank you
