You can use a floating static route (default route if connecting to your ISP).

ip route <atm interface or atm next-hop-router>
ip route <isdn interface or isdn next-hop-router> 10 <---administrative distance

Using a higher administrative distance than the default (0 - interface, 1 - next hop router address), the route will only be used if the primary route (ATM) is removed from the routing table, i.e. the interface is down.

Thanks for reply to my question.
Is there someone with a configuration example ?

My posted comment was the configuration example.  Two "ip route" statements, one with a higher administrative distance (10).
