[zeromq-dev] Extending pipeline model, distributing jobs based on the type of job to specific workers

I am trying to solve the following problem and I can't think of any model
which I can use: I have n workers and 1 distributor. Distributor has jobs
for n workers and every worker can solve only a specific type of job. It
has to distribute jobs to the workers such that no job is dropped.

I tried using pub-sub but it drops messages when the publisher queue is
full. If I use pipeline model, it distributes jobs among all workers. Any
addition to it would be really helpful. Dropping of a job is not fine
compared to blocking the distributor, which is fine. I am a beginner in
zeromq and have followed through the guide on the homepage.

Thank you!
