We do mark the host dead immediately below the code snippet you posted.
However, we do not mark it dead forever. We have a falling off retry
timer (try to connect again in 1 sec,then 2, then 4, then 8 ...). This
way if the host comes back up, it should automatically be put back into
the pool. I plan on adding some functionality to stop this from
happening (if a host dies, it stays out of rotation until jvm restart).
Hope this answers your question.
