Thanks, but you answered a question that I did not mean to ask (and
already knew the answer to). 

Rather than lowering the standards for all certificates, when caught in
a gmail load balancing unpredictability is there any way to mark both of
(hopefully) only two gmail certificates as accepted?

Lowering the standards for one provider would be less bad than lowering
the standards for all certificates.
