Public DNS Failover Options

Hi All,

I have a situation and not sure if there is a true solution to this.

Basically we have got to offices that are connected together via a 1GB Fibre line.

In each office is a 100mb internet line, and if office a internet goes down it routes via office b and vice versa.

So we have an a record called webmail.company.com and this resolves to an ip in office a, and when that internet goes down webmail becomes accessible.

Is there a 3rd party hosted dns sevice which can repoint this if a host becomes unaccessible?
