Multiple gateways on a windows server

I have two windows servers which needs to communicate with each other as well as with a set of desktops. They are in cluster with a heart beat connection between them thru a layer 2 switch.
Each server has 4 NICs. 2 NICs are teamed and set with a defult gateway of 3rd NIC is setup with as default gateway and this subnet is purely used for a cluster heartbeat connectvity purposes.

When the sever has to send the packets to the desktops (192.168.x.x) via the gateway, sometimes it randomly sends via heartbeat network ( gateway)and the packets are being dropped at the first hop itself.
I have manually setup route entries in the server to use the gateway.. but still the problem persists. Is there anything i could do here?
