So your slaves connect to f.e. HA.domain.com
which has two A records: 22.214.171.124, 126.96.36.199 ?

You mean your slave loses connection to the master and reconnects often?
Once the slave is connected to the master it could go on forever* on that
established connection unless there are network problems.
When the slave reconnects, sometimes the master fails to find the PTR for the
slave's IP address... I can't tell you exactly why. It just isn't fool-proof.

Grant replication slave ON *.* TO 'fc_mirror2'@'184.108.40.206'; and the
problem should be gone.
