I thought you had to explicitly set a server to "partner down" state 
for it to take over all addresses. This is because there are faults 
that can result in both servers being up and able to communicate with 
clients, but not communicate with each other - therefore you cannot 
assume that just because you can't talk to the partner, it's down.
