Use a fallback mountpoint. This is far more flexible than the shoutcast 
solution. You can either fall back to a live mountpoint or a static file.
I use a fallback to a live mountpoint with ices2 playing a short 
playlist of jingles plus an announcement that service will resume shortly.

More details in the friendly manual.
