Your description is a bit complicated, but I think what you mean is that
PowerDNS should internally know about X IP addresses for a host name, and
randomly serve *one* of those X addresses?

Are you really sure you want that? Typically everybody picks the first
answer, so in effect you get what you want already.

If you really want this behaviour, you could write a small pipe-backend
script that serves as an overlay for that single host name, and you could
script that to return 1 single IP address.

Good luck!
