    DNS Software

    Any good DNS software that is not round robin, meaning if DNS A is down it will go to DNS B and will not have a 50% chance of hitting the downed DNS server.

    That's not a function of DNS or a DNS server. That's what a load balancer is for, whether it's a simple one on a local network, or a global load balancer (GSLB).

    I'm not aware of any open source or free GSLB's. It wouldn't be too difficult to script something on your own. But basically GSLB's run a DNS server in them, but behind the scenes they continuously query and check the health of multiple remote sites, and also return IP addresses based on where the user is coming from.
