I have the following configuration at present.  Router A is our IP clear router on site with Router B as the internet router.  Router C is a router at our main site.

I want to route the internet out from site via router B but if the interface/ Router B fails then send traffic to X.X.X.X via router D.

I have the following config which allows the traffic out via Router C and manually removing the statement  ip route X.X.X.X 255.255.255.255 B.B.B.B on router A sends the traffic down link D.  I want to know how to make the statement dynamic based on the state of router B or link A

Router A

router BGP 123

ip route X.X.X.X 255.255.255.255 B.B.B.B

Router B

Ip route 0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 dialer 1

Router C

router bgp 123
network X.X.X.X mask 255.255.255.255
ip router X.X.X.X 255.255.255.255 D.D.D.D

Try using a higher admin distance for the secondary route.  That way it will be less preferred until the primary route goes away.

network X.X.X.X mask 255.255.255.255 <distance>

In the world of WAN, QoS is a pretty important topic for most, if not all, networks. Some WAN technologies have QoS mechanisms built in, but others, such as some L2 WAN's, don't have QoS control in the provider cloud.
