1. Is it possible to modify the timeout for a connection attempt to a

2. I assume that a backend that fails verification will be blacklisted
for some time? If so, how long? And will a backend that fails a
connection attempt be handled in the same way?

2. If perlbal can not verify or connect to any of the backends, can
perlbal be configured to reply with a default 'Service Unavailable'?
