[Samba] Reduntant Samba servers?

I am trying to setup two redundant Samba Servers.
The file shares are on both servers and needs to be synced.
My best solution is to run an rsync between them every 5 min ?
Are there any smarter solution to this?
Another problem is how I could solve the kerberos authentication in the
best possible way?
We have a Windows AD server and authenticate through kerberos.
If server1 is down I want to switch to server2 but use the same DNS /
Computer name because all users have it mapped. It also saves the profiles.
I have tried to set up a DNS alias on the AD server's DNS and my idea
was that I just could switch the alias to the server I want to use.
But that doesn't work because it is the alias name that tries to
authenticate to kerberos and I then get: "Server not found in Kerberos
database" on the kerberos server.
I hope someone has a smart solution to this?
