Hi,

that is possible.
If that is windows DNS, then simple open DNS --> right click on required DNS zone --> new A record --> enter ip address and hostname. Then repeat again for same hostname, but another ip address.

Take a look at picture.dns
Regards,
Ivan.

No, you need to add more than one A record with a single address each. In the default DNS configuration that will lead to round-robin usage, alternating in sequence thru the A records. That is, two successive DNS queries should result in different sequences of IP addresses.
