It uses the cisco IP SLA feature

We generally configure a IP SLA monitor that uses the ICMPecho functionality and tracks the reachability of destination specified.

We then bind this to the static route as Edison quoted above. When the destination specified is not reachable then that route is flushed from the table. This technique helps as you can have the IP SLA destination multiple hops away and still flush out the static route entry for a failure not with the immediate nexthop.
