You can create a script which when we get a timeout from some reliable server on internet can alter the route or send the packets over to B instead of A. Create a linux-gateway C, make all your users having this as default gateway & run this script here to route packets destined for 443/80/53(tcp/udp)/21 tcp ports.

Or you can use load-balancing with squid with one parent proxy(C) & two child proxy(A & B) with round-robin caching & service provision.
