You could do this with a listener on 25565 that talks the normal minecraft protocol; it can see who is trying to log on, query the db and either try to redirect or otherwise marshall the traffic between the user and the selected minecraft server.

I'm not sure how well this would work for gameplay, though. I run a minecraft server for my kids and their friends, and when they log on they all want to play together; if you threw one of them off into another server they wouldn't be playing with their friends.
