Cisco ACS RADIUS Server redundancy

I have several Cisco AS5350 Voice Gwys currently sending Accounting Data to a Cisco Secure ACS RADIUS server which is logging the data as well as exporting it to a Database Server via ODBC.

My question is regarding how I can build in redundancy into this scenario. At initial glance it would seem I can have my ACS server forward data (or remote logging) to another ACS server as a backup, but this is not really what I'm after. Ideally I'd like a scenario where the Gwys can send to two different ACS servers which would then have the ability to log to the Database. This would require a Primary & Secondary type configuration, where if the Pri RADIUS server was not found the Accounting Data would be sent to the Sec RADIUS server.

Is this possible? Can I specify 2 RADIUS servers and assign some priority similar to Primary & Secondary? Similar to what you can currently do with multiple H323 Gatekeeper definitions, where you specify the priority to use.

Any comments would be much appreciated.
