two out of three keyservers down?

After struggling with sending and retrieving keys for several days I
finally noticed that uses DNS round robin to provide you
with a keyserver. But two out of the three servers are down.

$ host has address has address has address

209.234.170 ( works. ( and
( are both down.

Since is the default keyserver name used could the broken
keyservers be removed from the DNS round robin pool?

The gnupg user experience is really bad otherwise. If you are lucky to
hit the one that works everything is fine, but two out of three times
you hit a bad one and things just stall and hang for ages.
