I have a question. The above works fine if we have two servers in cluster with different hostname/FQDN e.g. and with respective DNS records configured properly. Now lets assume that both servers are running same services which are KMS and web messenger and mail proxy service is disabled. What would be the configuration if we want to failover + load balance these two servers using DNS round robin and at the same time allow external users to be able to locate PGP keys of our internal users.

So in this case do we need to assign same hostname and different IPs to both servers? i.e.

If yes what would be the steps to configure cluster properly. Please correct me if my understanding is wrong and also suggest the right solution.
