[Samba] Samba AD Printer Failover

at the moment there is:

dc1 is samba ad member but has no installed printer

client -> dc2 -> printer connect via IP
(client download the driver from dc2)

what is when dc2 is down? as I understand that right client cant print
because sdc2 is down.

now my question:
is there a way to do a failover, if dc2 is down use dc1 as printserver,
(without installing a 2nd printer on the client which connected to dc1)
