Agreed, I will do some checking and file a bug with them (as time permits).
One quick and effective workaround would be list two different names
for mirrors with two IPs.
In that case:
$ host rpmfind.net
rpmfind.net has address 126.96.36.199
rpmfind.net has address 188.8.131.52
$ host fr.rpmfind.net
fr.rpmfind.net has address 184.108.40.206
$ host fr2.rpmfind.net
fr2.rpmfind.net has address 220.127.116.11
Replacing the line with rpmfind.net with two lines, one with
fr.rpmfind.net and the other with fr2.rpmfind.net, seems a good idea
to me. I did a quick check and using the other names (which might be
different virtual hosts) seems to work fine, at least from the browser
to see the list of packages.
