Remove/add [A] records based upon server availability

Is there a method in BIND to add/remove A records based upon server availability?


host www has A records,,  If is 'down' (via a ping test, for example) we remove it from the [A] record until such time that it is back 'up' and the host is added back to the A records.


Does this exist in BIND or has anyone developed such a script?  I would like to do this.  please help!!  thanks.
