m0n0wall neither does failover nor load balancing, but what you describe
could be accomplished with the "Poor Man's Time-Based Rules with
m0n0wall" idea: http://wiki.m0n0.ch/wikka.php?wakka=PoorMansTimeBasedRules
instead of doing something time based, you can have a script ping the
first host in a set interval, i.e. every 10 seconds
ping -i 10 host1
if the response times out, you can fire off a script to change fw and
NAT rules as described above.
