Side note: if you really want to test behavior on unstable networks, use netem
Since destination down is quite trivial case and you only can test
there timeouts and request repeating. Packets loss, corruption and
duplication, rate limiting and delays are the real behavior of the
real unstable networks, especially like wifi and 3g.

About the subj: what have you used for balancing? Are you sure that
this phenomena isn't balancer issue which tries to reach "failed" node
before try the next one - that could cause the latency.

As usual for any benchmarks, it would be good to see numbers and
how-to guide to reproduce test bench and results locally.
