That doesn't sound like anything to do with rate limiting to me.

It sounds more like load balancing, where you want one case to receive
three times the load of the other.


On that basis, if it must be done purely in nginx.conf, I'd probably use
"upstream" with different "server" directives with different "weight"
arguments; and have the individual servers just "return 200 SUCCESS\n"
or "return 200 FAILURE\n".

The main directives there are documented from http://nginx.org/r/upstream

(Although really, I probably wouldn't do it purely in nginx.conf.)
