fault-tolerant dfs?

Hey :D
I was messing around in the lab and thought of an idea. DFS is quite nice, isn't it? I set up active directory to allow users have roaming profile paths and home folders. However, I would like a fault-tolerant method for providing this. Assuming one of my servers hosting a users h:\ drive decided to die, the active directory replication will still point to the \\servername\share folder, is there a way I can make a "deeper" dfs root, or a servername switch? I could make a replica of the backup server with the main server's files no problem, scheduled tasks would do it. But how would I tell the server to change \\server1\home to \\server2\home ?
