    we run a small social marketing company which involves the development of websites as well .. and so we host our clients websites ourselves.. over the past couple of months we've openly started taking new customers to our service..

    now the thing is .. we want to setup a backup server.. one which would kick in when the primary goes down .. we only want a backup server for mails.. the website being down doesnt really matter .
    something like, when the primary goes down, automatically the 3rd and 4th ns kick in and take all communication to the backup server .. once the primary server comes back online, the mail received on the backup server after the primary went down is synced back, and then any and all new mail would be accepted by the primary.

    how would this work?
