Why is a Balb so screwed up?

Hi all,
The title says it all. The Balb/C seems to be an absolute disaster in terms of
beating an infection. I have heard it is an archetypal Th2 mouse but this seems
to be a hand waving explaination.  Just curious.  I haven't seem much on the
actual genetic reasons for it being so much more screwed up than say a swiss or
C57.
