There are load balancer recommendations in the Multiple UMP Server Configuration Guide. See the "Configuring a Load Balancer" section for details on the recommended load balancer configuration:

Part of the load balancer configuration requires sticky sessions to be enabled:

This section tells you the high-level steps to configure your load balancer to run with UMP.

Load balancers vary. Refer to your load balancer documentation for configuration details.

1. Configure the load balancer with virtual IP addresses for the two UMP servers.

2. Configure the load balancer to use sticky sessions

Sticky sessions is a feature of many commercial load balancing solutions that allows web farms to route requests for a particular session to the same machine that serviced the first request for that session. This ensures that a session is not disrupted as a result of requests related to that session being routed to different servers.

3. Configure your load balancer to use a load balancing algorithm

A load balancing algorithm tells the load balancer how to distribute incoming requests. The most common load balancing algorithm is the round robin, where one connection is sent to each server on the list in turn.
