Questions on InitialContext and replica-aware stub caching

Hi All,
We have a cluster and deployed with some stateless ejb session beans. Currently we only cached the InitialContext object in the client code, and I have several questions:
1. in the current case, if we call lookup() to get a replica-aware stub, which server will return the stub object, the same server we get the InitialContext, or it will load balanced to other servers every time we call the lookup method?
2. should we just cache the stub? is it thread safe? if it is, how does the stub handle concurrent requests from the client threads? in parallels or in sequence?

One more question, when we call new InitialContext(), it will take a long time before it can return a timeout exception if the servers are not reachable, how can we set a timeout for this case?
