Bug Description

It looks like the priority is handled correctly, but the weight attribute is more of a statistical thing (see RFC2782 weight ordering algorithm on page 3 for the gory details).

You can probably just copy the code from the Perl module (srv_hostname function):

As far as I can tell, it should work.

At least, I can't easily see anything wrong with your code.
