The world should cache phonydomain.com. Since it will "never" go down just have phonydomain.com be the traffic redirector. You could login to Network Solutions/Register.com and toggle it between your two servers. Would that work?
That's a good point. Actually, when I was doing my research, that's the first thing I looked for. Basically, a proxy provider that would allow me to point my domain to one of their IP and control where that IP goes. A "hosted" load balancer/router service if you will. However, I wasn't able to find any company offering that service so I decided to go with DNS failover.
