Please re-read the thread, there is no loadbalancer involved in this test
setup, just a (not so much) floating Virtual IP managed by pacemaker.

And in production the loadbalancer would be LVS, which is very much
agnostic of anything above L3.

There is no device or local software on the server that would or could
intercept traffic between the test servers and testing sources.

But as stated in the previous reply to Jeremy, this looks like a gnutls
issue most likely.
