How does Round Robin iSCSI work

I'm trying to understand how round robin in iSCSI workings? I know in DNS once server would repond to a request then another server would handle the next request. This wouldn't make sence for iscsi though??

it uses TCP connections, it is simply impossible to lurk one to other host without heavy TCP negotiation.

The other path will handle request if first path fails, like in FC or multiple SCSI paths.

PS only reference about round robin along iSCSI i saw in vmware, so it means - when it disconnects - connect to next path.
