Additional route for Backup line.

Hi all,

Currently our Site A router have 1 default route ( to Internet ) and BGP route to the branches.

The primary line is using BGP to connect to the branches.

Now, our ISP gave us ADSL secondary line as a Backup for the primary line. 

I already configure the PPPOE connection and I get the IP for Backup line.

But my question is what route should i configure for the Backup line to kick-in once the Primary line down.

Default route still need to go to the Internet.
