That would make a bad netizen. A more acceptable approach would be be
to start a second connection attempt after one or two seconds. In that
case we can assume that there is a problem with the first address. Also
randomly selecting from 3 addresses could make sense.
Anyway, such an optimization requires a larger rework and we need to get
2.2 out of the door before we do such things.
