Add option for Multiple KDC servers for DataPower Resiliency

We are using kerberos delegation and have a KDC server configured. We have 4 KDCs but have only configured one of them in DataPower.

Microsoft doesn't support load balancing KDC's, so we are not able point to a load balanced address for the KDC server. We are currently at risk of having downtime if the KDC server we are pointing to goes down.

Can we add more than one KDC servers to Data Power? Where Data Power would use different KDC's if one of them goes down.

We have implemented Kerberos delegation similar to what is described in this article.

I would like a configuration or solution where we experience an outage with the KDC server we are pointing to but Data Power would start using the other ones configured
