[Pdns-users] Load balance NAPTR responses

Hi Guys,
Hope all are well?
I have implemented powerdns as a ENUM server, so it has a MySQL (Percona DB) which delivers NAPTR records when queried and this works really well.
We do however have an issue, wonder if anyone had worked around.
We have a number of NAPTR records which have the same order_value and preference, so in affect they are tied (due to costings), an example being; 120 IN NAPTR 76 1 "U" "E2U+sip" "!^(.*)$!sip:*311*+\\1 at!" . 120 IN NAPTR 76 1 "U" "E2U+sip" "!^(.*)$!sip:*241*\\1 at!" .  
Now I use a stored procedure to deliver the results, and our issue is the client that processes the results, reads from the bottom up, and always picks the lowerest order_value or priority combination but this comes an issue when entries are the same.
As ideally I want to load balance across the 2 entries , however the client (Genband Server) only reads results in a certain order, bottom up.
Has anyone had this issue before? I was thinking of adding another column to the DB and its incremented after a selection which could then allow me to return results based on an order function but dont know how viable that is.
Any help would be great.
Many thanks
