the key point is what is configured on current AVG: if there the load-balancig commands is missing it will behave as HSRP
If no load-balance algorithm is specified then GLBP will operate in an identical fashion to HSRP, the AVG will only respond to Address Resolution Protocol (ARP) requests with its own Virtual Forwarder (VF) MAC address, and all traffic will be directed to the AVG with no occurrence of load balancing.
the fact that you could have configured a load balancing method on the standby router has no effect because it is not the owner of the AVG MAC address
You need to configure the load-balancing on the router that is the Active AVG
this allows to have GLBP behaves like HSRP if desired
post mortem...after some testing, by default round-robin shows up in the show glbp and it is in fact occurring. in addition, if you explicitly enable it, round robin occurs. explicitly disable it (do a no...) round robin still occurs. conclusion: with glbp there appears to be no way to not load balance. should someone come up with some reason to not want load balancing while running some form of recovery for default gateways, you would end up needing to use hsrp. hope this helps somebody else down the road.
