While using unicast mode and virtual mac address both boxes become a Master.

Config example:
hello-source-address 146.82.87.2
interface eth2

priority 200
rfc3768-compatibility #virtual mac address usage

Problem could be resolved with "vmac_xmit_base" directive in keepalived.conf (on the screenshot)
