It is one DNS name which resolves to two IPs. Yum automatically uses the correct mirrorlist server if one of the servers is down (or if nothing answers on port 80).As far as I can see there is no code to do this anywhere, for either mirrorlist or metalink yum just has a single URL and requests that from urlgrabber (and AFAIK there's nothing in urlgrabber to try all IPs for a given host, but maybe there is).I don't know about urlgrabber specifically, but most browser-type things these days will try all IPs from the list DNS returns until one succeeds. It makes life easier - and it is much nicer when working through caching proxies if all of the targets have the same name instead of having every host being updated pick a randomly different mirror name and download new copies of everything.
It's not how ping, for example works, or telnet, or anything - I can think of.
