Tool to detect and alert when DNS failover occurs

Last Modified: 2016-07-18
We have a Windows 2012 IIS server which we think is losing connection to its primary DNS and failling over to its alternate.   We would like to receive an email notification when this occurs.  How can this be achieved?

If possible it would be useful for the alert to include any details which might help us investigate what is preventing it contacting the primary DNS.
