the use of <fallback-mount> and fallback-override> in the <mount>
section is what you need for this.  If the fallback stream is connected
and is of the same format then the clients will be moved to it, and from
it (if override is set).

make sure the fallback stream is connected because if it is not then
clients would have to be dropped.  Without your xml config it's hard to
be more specific.
