the nt backup just make the backup acording to what you have set on it.
it wont change  tapes automaticly, your tape storage should have a solution that take cares of this
if you have a good tape backup that swithc tape automated.
think about using another program such a symantec.

NTBACKUP solution is a very BASIC app
i would recomend it for a critical mission of database
