duplicate the client's requests to another server

I can't think of a (simple) way of doing this through NGINX.

It seems to me that the simplest might be to handle this on iptables (are
you using Linux?) directly by setting up something similar to what's
covered here:


so your destination would be some sort of an alias that actually represents
2 destinations.

Would you be able to provide more context about your environment and why
you are thinking of implementing that?
