I once unsuccessfully tried to use ip to do policy routing such that traffic
destined for the outside world would go through a NAT box, rather than
going direct. You should be able to make a route to match the source
address on the real server, as this will be its IP address, rather than
that of a virtual service.

The attempt was unsuccessful but I do believe it is possible, I just had
other priorities at the time.
