The above location is a Microsoft Network Load Balancing Cluster and has a Cluster IP address of 10.5.22.44 and DNS of test.com (IP and hostname not the real ones)
The cluster contains 2 servers test1 (10.5.22.56) and test2 (10.5.22.15).

When you ping the DNS name we receive ping responses from other IP addresses (e.g. 10.5.22.77 and 78 etc).
What is the reason behind this?
