As far as I understood, distributing one user's request among multiple
servers increases the chance of fast, parallel serving of tiles as the
browser will normally have a limit of 4 (or so) parallel connections to
any one server, but allow 16 (or so) overall parallel connections.
Of course, having a lot of parallel servers also increases your chances
of having at least one that doesn't currently work ;-)
