I've configured a bonded interface (bond0) and connected it to the LAN:
Code:
san2:~ # ifconfig bond0
bond0     Link encap:Ethernet  HWaddr 00:30:48:94:AD:D2  
          inet addr:192.168.1.2  Bcast:192.168.1.255  Mask:255.255.255.0
          UP BROADCAST RUNNING MASTER MULTICAST  MTU:1500  Metric:1
          RX packets:1001 errors:0 dropped:36 overruns:0 frame:0
          TX packets:1831 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
          collisions:0 txqueuelen:0 
          RX bytes:816744 (797.6 Kb)  TX bytes:207034 (202.1 Kb)

san2:~ # route -n

The bonded interface (bond0 - 192.168.1.2) is ping'able but packets sent out the interface to the LAN segment seem to be routed to the default gateway instead of being sent directly to the neighboring host:
Code:
san2:~ # ping san1.example.com
PING san1.example.com (191.168.1.1) 56(84) bytes of data.

What's causing this?
