SQLHOSTS groups connect to non-primary

Include at SQLHOSTS options specific for groups to allow connection for non-pimary servers
Something like : conn_sec = 1

Today if you have a RSS as first option at SQLHOSTS group (set with c=0 option) , the client do not connect at this server, just skip it and If you have only non-primaries/standards severs at the group , get the error :
