report such bugs to the manufacturers of the NAS devices and double
check your device configs - several of them have quirky ways of failing
over. if you do want to point to a single IP etc then just standard
L4 balancing will work - but ensure that the FR boxes are sharing
the same information if you rely on accounting records for decisions
(eg simultaneous usage)
