[SLUG] DNS question - multiple www servers


Hi,

What if I had 2 apache web servers (for redundancy), that both answer to the
same www.xyz.com.au name.

How would I need to set up my DNS zone file in order to have the name
www.xyz.com.au resolved to multiple (2 in this case) IP addresses?

Would this setup lead to, if www server 1 is down, that the browser would
look at the next IP address and requests the web pages from there?

Will such a setup also work for ftp or proxy servers?

Hope this makes sense.
