[nsd-users] DNSSEC question

Sometimes when a owner has multiple A (or AAAA) records, recursive 
resolvers change the order in which a client receives them.

Does DNSSEC force them to be in the same order or is the order still 
subject to change and the whim of a recursive server?

What I am trying to do is set up fall-back IP addresses in case a 
particular IP address is offline, and trying to find work-around for a 
lack of order preference (like MX records have) in A/AAAA records.

I use DNSSEC anyway and am *hoping* that means DNSSEC enforcing 
resolvers will preserve the order the records have coming from the 
authoritative server.

Thanks for suggestions.
