    ARP standard. I think it is RFC 826:
    An Ethernet Address Resolution Protocol

    The correct standard in this case is RFC1122 and it actually
    offers two options for this: the so called strong end host model and the
    weak end host model. Linux can be configured to be both. Default
    is the later.

    By use of a bridge interface, yeah. Are there other ways to get the
    strong end host model?

    Please quote the section where it says that routing implementations
    MUST round-robin over a group of interfaces with same subnet.
