Not sure how well this would work but you could make a mirror on the 2nd host and then add NS3, NS4 to your domain. Then , I think this is how it works, wich ever host comes up the fastest will serve the domain. However, I would not even think of trying this. Of course you could have email problems then... If you have emails on both servers wich one will your mail client download from?
