Load balance - how to split incoming traffic unevenly

This is my first post on the forum.
I have been using pfsense for last couple of months for various purposes and so far everything works fine. Now, I have a few doubts regarding pfsense load balance. I have set up a load balance cluster with 3 web servers. I have added a VIP (public IP) and then load balanced it with three web servers (using their private IPs). Load balancer is working fine. However, I have a couple of questions; does pfsense do round robin load balancing? How can I split incoming traffic unevenly? for example, I would like to send 40% of incoming traffic to web server1, 50% of traffic to web server 2 and 10% of traffic to web server 3. Is is possible to implement this using pfsense load balancer?
Thanks in advance.

not with the built in load balancer, you should be able to do that with one of the add-on options in packages, like haproxy is the one that's most frequently used for more advanced load balancing scenarios.
