You really, really need a multi master for that? Like modyfing no both 
servers and/or unable to wait for the real master to go online?
Because it looks like a normal slave configuration to me.
Or, if you need to be able to modify records from both servers than maybe 
multi-master with rsync'ing to the other server will work? It's tricky, as 
you need to both rsync and then rndc reload, and remember to do it when you 
change anything OR the dead server goes up, but might be an option.
