Ensure failover detection ping from SSP PS can be recognized as such in B2B

These pings are causing literally thousands of errors in our C:D logs on B2B every hour - as the C:D server adapter can see the pings hitting the port but recognizes that they are not valid C:D sessions. A recent health check performed by IBM/SabreX identified these errors and according to B2B support, there's no way to ignore them or get rid of them currently. You can't simply add them as a load balancer address within the C:D properties file, as this would in effect then stop any communication from the SSP PS to B2B. I think there would be clear performance benefit if the CDSA didn't have to log these errors and was able to recognize them as valid pings.

How will this idea be used?

We're currently evergreening our SFG and SSP services to RHEL8 - It would be great if this can be addressed in a newer version of B2B at some point in Q1 next year as the new services will be in build then.
