DNS Round Robin

Hi all,
I have a domain hosted with PlusNet and I was wondering how I could use the domain tool to implement a round-robin system on dns hosts.
eg:
I want irc.example.org to point to irc.sub1.example.org and irc.sub2.example.org so that either one will be selected at random.

If its not possible I suggest the option to have full access to the zone files for hosted domains so they can be edited by hand.

Regards,
Andrew D Wiles

I doubt they'll do this.

I asked for the NS record ns2.force9.net to be changed and was simply told "we are not a hosting provider"

Balls if you ask me.

I own 6 sites all of which are hosted free of charge by the company that i pruchased them through. The 'pointing' is done through the control panel when i log in.

http://www.tohb.org.uk/ has no webspace and has not been 'pointed' (by myself) to http://www.weblinksonline.co.uk/

http://www.homecomps.co.uk/ has no webspace and has been 'pointed' (by myself) to http://www.homecomps.netfirms.com/

http://www.wiccanlink.org.uk/ has no webspace and has been 'pointed' (by myself) to a site that is trying to sell the name for me.

http://www.safetytest.org.uk/ has webspace and has been 'pointed' (by myself) to http://www.weblinksonline.co.uk/
