sorry, i didn`t know how it worx with an nameserver, but I think what you
try it is not a good solution.
I think it is better you use an tool like fake:
You check with the backup-server, if the first is alive.
if the first geoes down, you start fake.
fake change then the ip of the backup-server, so he is reachable like the
You still check, if the first server comes up. if so, you run 'fake remove'.
This will remove the ip-address from the backup-server.
You can find fake an more information about it here:
I hope this helps a little bit
Sorry, for my bad english, but I think your german is also bad :-)))

Betreff: a record ?ranking?
Is there any way to ?rank? A records - kindof like the way MX records are
setup. In other words - if I had two servers setup as www.123.com and I
wanted to make sure that the user always went to the first one, but if and
only if that server is unavailable they would be sent to server 2.
www IN A 999.999.100.1
www IN A 999.999.100.2
I want the users to always go to 1
but if 1 is completely unavailable go to 2
