Redundant Samba Servers

Dear All:

I have three Linux computers on my network, all having the same content. 
These things serve some very important shares, so I want to be dead sure 
that they are always up. But I don't want users to connect to a different 
name each time. If one samba server goes down, the user should be able to 
connect to another one with the same name.

So is it possible to have multiple Samba servers with the same name, for 
redundancy? In case one fails, the user connects again using the same name, 
and he's back in business.

Or rather, is there any other way of doing this?
