Hosts output target using AD Sites Services

What happens when hosts is a domain record that returns multiple addresses ?
Does it use the first, all of them, only the ones that work, load balance.. ?

The goal was to use sites and services to always return the closest IP first for

Config OK
parse host... OK
dns lookup... OK
dial up... OK
TLS... WARN secure connection disabled
talk to server... OK
Status : Stopped
Name : winlogbeat

It will try each IP until it successfully connects. It does this in a random order.

It won't load balance unless you explicitly configure it to do so with loadbalance and workers.

Thats disappointing why random?

That takes away our ability to direct winlogbeat to the lostash host closest to the server without additional install logic.
