To my knowledge, routers don't generally route based on session. They
maintain flow information is cases, but you learn quickly that it's a
one way record, and the corresponding flows may have a different path.
There are exceptions, and perhaps some Junipers even support more
oddball session based routing, though my m120 and cisco don't seem to.
