It seems that Vista implements RFC 3484 address selection, including the
requirement to sort IP addresses. This breaks a great deal of operational
dependence on DNS-based load balancing, as well as being based on an
incorrect understanding of how IP addresses are allocated.
RFC 3484 needs to be updated to delete this rule, so that the order
returned from the DNS is honoured when the client has no better knowledge
about which address is appropriate.
