If I run a main server running dns for two domains and one domain is pointed to another IP off of the server, what will happen when the main server goes down? Will the domain pointed to the other IP off of the server still function?
Reason for asking... Thinking of having a simple status page on another server that gives the status of the main server. So if the main server goes down I can post updates. But I think it may not work as I would use something like status.domain.com pointing to the 2nd server.
Does this all make sense?
