Either ‘roundrobin’ or ‘priority’.

‘roundrobin’ randomly selects a URL out of the list of URLs to
start with and proceeds through each of them as it encounters a
failure contacting the host.

‘priority’ starts from the first baseurl listed and reads
through them sequentially.

failovermethod defaults to ‘roundrobin’ if not specified.
