Secondary IP addresses for Host A records

I have two separate ISPs connected to my firewall for Load Balancing and Failover. I just added the second ISP services. I want to have my GODADDY dns host records to point to two different static IP addresses, one from each ISP. I have purchased premium DNS services from godaddy. I have learned that I need to setup my own nameserver services in order to gain this functionality.

I am in a windows server 2008 environment using VMware. How do I configure my DNS server for this to work with godaddy DNS. Can I set this up on my existing DNS/Domain controller or should I setup a seperate Windows VM?

You would need to create a DNS server that is accessible to the public, then change the Nameservers for your domain in Godaddy. There should be an option for that in the Domain settings section there. The DNS server is the tricky part.

You are correct This will create a backup of the name servers to fail over in case Godaddy's nameservers goes down. But that was not the solution I was after. I have to find a 3rd part DNS service that can handle HA for DNS records with multiple IP addresses.
