faster fail-over between multiple masters

I have 9.7.0-P1 as slave configured with two masters: M1 and M2. M2 is
currently down.

When M1 sends a NOTIFY to inform the salve of the new zone, bind starts
querying for the SOA record at M2. As M2 is down, bind sends
retransmissions and tries it several times. It takes up to 2 minutes
until bind starts asking M1 - then the transfer of course works fine.

The question is: can I tweak bind to fail-over to other master servers
