Just out of interest; why are you trying to load balance JMS requests
across JMS brokers for a single JVM? (which generally breaks ordering
of queues)?. Why not have each JVM connect to one broker?  Test load
balancing with multiple client JVMs?

FWIW a single broker can usually handle a few thousand client JVMs; so
the idea of one JVM talking to multiple brokers does seen a tad odd?
Are you sure you're not confusing load balancing of consumers with
that of having mutliple brokers?
