I don't know of any servers that are written to do this. However, it
seems like a nice idea. :-) The specs don't require any special action
on the part of a server when it connects to another domain after the
initial connection failed. If desired I could write up some recommended
best practices for this scenario.

Not that I know of. But really this should be an implementation issue
and the admin shouldn't have to do anything to make this happen.
