So theory being the client switches SP servers, authentication is needed
so it sends them back to the IdP.

Ok, but I don't see how that correlates to that error in the log. Did the
error page from the IdP actually say that?

I guess my point is, expect nothing to change if you switch to something
else. Two IdP servers means stickiness and if you think that error is the
one they were seeing, that will happen again if it's not sticky. So you
still need root cause essentially.
