[Samba] Fileserver Failover with AD and Gluster

I currently plan to move my storage to Gluster. One of the anticipated 
advantages is to have Gluster replicate data among physical nodes, i.e. 
if one node dies the file service can live on.

AD for authentication also replicates nice on distinct physical nodes.

So the remaining single point of failure is the samba file service. Is 
there something more intelligent than:

if not \\severA\share -> try: \\serverB\share?
