hmm, udp load balances by staying on one realserver for a 
while (15mins? - see the UDP write ups in the HOWT0). It 
doesn't behave like tcp at all. I don't know what will 
happen if the realserver fails that clients are connecting 
to for that time interval.

Do you have another udp service you can test? ntp is udp, 
but the time interval for checks increases. Hopefully 
ntpdate is udp and you can run that on demand.

you don't have any firewall rules anywhere? turn them off 
for testing.
