Let me try and simplfy my previous explanation

Basically if you are going to have a primary shadow relationship between two ISP's you will need to get a BGP ASN as well as an network that would be honored, meaning routed by the secondary ISP. If your primary ISP cannot provide you enough address space to be routed by your secondary ISP then you will need to go to your Internet Registry and request a block of IPs that will be sizable enough to be routed by the secondary ISP. Other wise Dynamic DNS and static routing is your likely fall back.

Hope thats a little clearer.
