you maybe talking about host.serv3 ^^ ??
Without url_rewrite or any other way that will make the request uinque
there is no such way..(there can be a url_rewrite on the web service
also which will be very easy to implement and much efficient)
use three different url schemes like:
all that starts with foo go to host2
all that starts with bar go to host3
all the rest go to host1

If it looks good to you Notify me and I will try to compile an example.
