Wondering if anyone can confirm that multiple DNS servers configured for a WireGuard client won't actually work.

The GUI allows you to put in multiple servers in the DNS field for a WireGuard client and the log confirms that the client will be forced through both servers but if you look at the iptables rules, you see that it basically just adds a second rule which I think will never be activated.

The way VPN Director forces a device to use a specific DNS server is by creating a rule that redirects traffic over port 53 to the configured DNS server. Adding a second DNS server just adds a second such rule. But wouldn't the first rule always be activated and therefore stop processing any further rules, even if the first rule directs traffic to a server that is currently offline?
