IIS log & bad characters causes NXlog crash causing random event dump

We are using NXlog to send Windows EventLogs and IIS logs to Logstash (ELK).  It works very well indeed with only one problem - at 2am (we suspect IIS log rotation, or maybe weird Netscaler packet) every day the NXlog service crashes on ALL servers that are sending IIS logs.  We have some other servers only sending EventLogs - no crashing occurs.

Load Balanced Output Config

Trying to configure the NXLog forwarder to load balance it's output stream. I tried creating 2 output stanzas out1 and out2 with the appropriate IPs and then routed as Path   eventlog => out1, out2.

This seemed to clone the output stream as logs were going to both receivers. What would be the proper way to tell NXLog to use one IP if available, else another IP?
