Hello

FYI
the second next hop address will NOT be used unless you verify the availably in the PBR route-map

One a match is made in the route-map the router will continue to try and PBR to the first address even if that next hop is unreachable.

The following command validate those next hops.

Route-map xxx
set ip next-hop verify-availability
