These are separate mechanisms, at least for now.  :-(  The feature that you 
describe above is currently just for schedd fail-over.  Separately, in recent 
6.7 Condor releases, your pool can now have redundant collectors.

A feature that we very much hope will make the next 6.7 release of Condor will 
provide for a fail-over mechanism for negotiators.  This is, again, a 
different mechanism.
