route selection in static route

Dear Experts

         As we know, administrative distance for static route with next hop have 1 & with exit interface 0.

        If we create static route for same destination with next hop & exit interface, According administartive distance the route with exit interface should be selected , but router select both routes & do load balancing . Kindly Explain why it happens.

Thanks in Advance

This has been discussed a few times before. There are documents and books that make the same statment but unfortunately it is not true. Any statically entered route will always have an AD of 1. Only a directly connected interface has an AD of 0 and using the exiting interface as the next-hop does not make it directly connected.

As i say there are docs etc. that say the opposite but as you can see from your own test they are wrong.
