[Icecast] Icecast relay as a source to another icecast?

I have a situation where I'd like to be able to have icecast reach out to 
another icecast server as a client. Is this possible with relaying? From 
what I read relaying and master relaying both have the server reach out to 
another server.

The reason is this.

I have a hardware encoder (Telos audioactive) sitting on a cablemodem.

I have a remote provider (streamcheap or something) set to relay the telos 

It works, but eventually traffic on my cablemodem or other situations 
cause the remote to disconnect. It never is able to reconnect again for 
some reason.

I changed it where I have the telos unit talking to a local icecast 
server. Then the remote server currently relays by connecting into my 
local icecast server. This part works (as it did directly to the telos 
unit) but drops off just like before. I don't have full control over the 
remote end and I don't know why it isn't relaying. But with the local 
icecast server I was able to validate that it's 100% stable and doesn't 
disconnect / fail to reconnect to the audioactive unit.
