you should install the agent on both servers and make a seperate schedule for both hosts.  if it does a failover you wouldn't have a backup.  
if the backup is succesful, logs will be removed on the online store and the replication will do the same on the mailboxcopy;  if you backup all stores in once it's best to create a script that makes sure all mbxstores are running on the same host.  otherwise it will give you a failed backup if one of the stores is mounted on the other server.  Or if you can make a seperate job for each store on each server.  there will always be one success (hopefully) and one failed.
that's how we do it for the moment.
