User (load) distribution on player side

Forgive my ignorance since im very much a newbie at Shoutcast
I wrote a Shoutcast player in flash which works fine (more or less) and now im looking at relay servers and shoutcast server clusters.
My question would be does the shoutcast server automatically distribute users according to how much the relays are occupied or is this something i must take care of in the player? Which probably means querying each server and getting their statistics?
Also.. if the cluster is configured correctly is there a way to see all of its relays?

Thank you for your answers
