Using a secondary WINS server with Samba

We are attempting to use an NT server and backup NT server as our WINS
servers on a network with several unix systems which are running Samba.  We
would like the Samba systems to register with the main server if it is up
and with the backup server if it is not.  I see that you can specify a WINS
server in the smb.conf file but I do not see any way to assign a secondary
WINS.  Is this option available in Samba?
