ip host backup address

Hello,

I need to understand why there the possibility to have several IP addresses for a local host, while the router won't even try the second address if the first one doesn't repond!

I just tested in lab. I added "ip host test.testlocal 10.10.10.10 10.10.10.11" , the PCs are able to resolve the name to 10.10.10.10 and they ping it, but if 10.10.10.10 is not reachable, the name isn't resolved to 10.10.10.11


Thanks for your feedback in advance.

Mehdi
