How Does Weighting Work for Concatenated Multi-Part Messages?

On all versions of Oracle Communications Network Charging and Control (OCNCC or NCC) Messaging Manager (MM) is used to process Short Message Services (SMS) messages. The concept of a path is a common label applied to a collection of similar connections. Connections are grouped as follows:
- Messages received from connections within the same path will be treated equally. Routing, classification, relay rules, all downstream processing will only examine the path, and will not examine the individual connection details.
- Outbound delivery will select a path, and it is assumed that all connections within that path are functionally equal. Weighting parameters and outbound connection parameters may determine that one connection is preferred over another, but any single message delivered on that path may select any valid connection at any time.
When delivering a concatenated/multi-part message (for example a 4 part message), will each part of the message be load balanced across all the connections, or will all parts be treated as "one message" and be transmitted through only one connection?
