hi, im trying to figure out how to make the clients switch to their secondary DNS quicker when the first one fails to respond (cause it froze, crashed or whatever)

this is for my domain, I have 2 dns servers and I want the clients to immediately try another dns server if the first one fails to respond on the first attempt or something like that

Win XP, Win 7, and Win 8 clients try the second or third DNS server one second after trying the first one.  I'm not sure you can get faster than that.  Nevertheless, this should answer your question.
