The second (188.8.131.52) will be used in some circumstances (if a query to
the first times out, or the first returns an error), but servers for
particular domains aren't load-balanced in the same way as genera;-query
servers. This is arguably not optimal, but changing it is probably done
by a major rewrite of some fairly knarly code, and it's never got to the
top of the TODO list.
