Description

Page: https://docs.netgate.com/pfsense/en/latest/nat/port-forwards.html

Feedback:

Add a note that if the redirect target IP contains an alias with more than one IP, round-robin is used
see https://www.freebsd.org/cgi/man.cgi?query=pf.conf&apropos=0&sektion=0&manpath=FreeBSD+12.2-RELEASE+and+Ports&arch=default&format=html:

round-robin
       The round-robin option loops    through    the redirection    address(es).

       When    more than one redirection address is specified,    round-robin is
       the only permitted pool type.

I have something more in-depth in mind for this than is covered by that PR. It's already on my to-do list.

The redirect target content on the page already covered that, actually. The PR would have added it to the destination field which is incorrect.

I revised the page a bit and also expanded the info for the note that already covered this scenario so it is more attention-grabbing and informative.
