As with Ryan, I'm a little confused by exactly what you are looking for 

Do you mean that you want a request packet to be broadcast to a message 
group and then only one member of that group to produce a response (i.e. 
load balancing)?

Or, do you mean that one group member needs to be able to send a packet 
directly to another group member and then receive a response?
