Well it does seem to make at least some sense to me that if the first db
server goes down to retry the connection to that before falling back to
an alternate DSN or giving up entirely.

Yes, I agree, unfortunately I'm at a loss for how to discover this.  It
took enough digging for me to find this bit of code.

That said, I highly suspect it has something to do with either (1) newer
version of perl, (2) newer version of DBI or (3) newer version of
DBD::mysql (I don't think it's this last one because I initially
suspected it and went back about 10 versions and the issue was still there).
