[SR-Users] [ndb_redis] init_without_redis issue

In our architecture, Kamailio uses 2 local Redis servers to get routing
We noticed that if at the start of Kamailio the first in the modparam list
is a running Redis server (name=real), and the second in the list is not
running (name=fake), then Kamailio will not even try to connect to the
running one.

# ----- redis server params -----
modparam("ndb_redis", "init_without_redis", 1)
modparam("ndb_redis", "server", "name=real;addr=;port=6379;db=1")
modparam("ndb_redis", "server", "name=fake;addr=;port=6479;db=2")

But if the servers in the list above are reversed, then everything will
work as it should.
Looks the initialization order affects behavior.

Syslog output:
Nov 11 18:00:45 kamailio /usr/sbin/kamailio[11445]: ERROR: ndb_redis
[redis_client.c:224]: redisc_init(): Failed to create REDIS returned an

There is no established connection to the real server after Kamailio starts
both through redis-cli and through ss.
