Many of the dynamic DNS organizations will provide these services
for their customers. One such example would be dyndns.org, but I'm
sure there are plenty of others.

Assuming you don't make any fat-finger mistakes, this would be
one way that you could keep the secondary from going off-line due to
TTLs expiring, etc..., should it take you longer than expected to get
the real primary back online.
But you've got to watch those fat-finger mistakes. Make sure you
have good backups for everything, preferably both on and off-site.
