Diversion load in parallel with batteries

Hi, I see there is an opinion of keeping a wind generator always connected to the battery bank and switching the dump load in parallel with the batteries. I'm not sure how this works as the batteries will have a much lower resistance than the dump resistor so I expect it would still take the majority of the wind generator current. Also once charged, you would discharge the bank to a degree.
Is this a valid option?
cheers,
