I experienced this as well a couple of weeks ago. Solution/workaround
was to use LVS-NAT for a sorry server where I just put the address on
the loopback interface and have apache listen on it. 

Here's a piece from my ldirectord.cf (I know you're using keepalived,
but the idea is the same) :

        fallback=192.168.x.y masq
        real=172.20.x.y:80 masq 100

kind regards,
