Some mining clients allow you to define backup pools so in case the main pool isn't working or is having issues, you will mine to a second pool.

Phoenix miner has a special parameter
-pool2 where you can define the second failover pool and
-wal2 where you can define wallet address that will be used with the failover pool. If
-wal2 is not defined, a wallet defined in
-wal will be used with the failover pool.
