Ascend has this wonderful ideal to use RADIUS servers as a pool,
not in order. So an Ascend will stick with the RADIUS server its
on until it doesn't like it anymore, then move one. This can cause
great problems if you are trying to use concurrency control, and
both RadiusNT servers are not pointing to the same database.
