Normally most of the company will retry the host for 48 hours if it is not reachable. So, if the server come back with in this period you will not loose any emails which are intended to you.

To my knowledge you can not setup a notification said above, because the emails normally generates NDR after the retry interval saying that the remote domain is unavailable.
