Hi, Olle!

Yes, the offer&answer should be taken by one single node. How it internally works is we compute a hash of the callid of the call and based on that hash, and we consider that hash a random value to pick one available server. This means that as long as the available list does not change, the same server will be always picked.
If however the list changes, even the order of the elements in the list change, a different node might get chosen. This has been fixed in OpenSIPS 3.2 by the rtp_relay module[1].

Setting a 0 weight for a node will do what you said - will be used only in case all the other non-0 weighted nodes were tried. All you need to do is to provision in the database, or in the script, the weights.
