yep. that wont work. reason? because you proxied to the
remote RADIUS. it didnt know the user and therefore you got
a reject. once you get a reject then all bets are off with this
config - the 'fail-over' is if there is no answer from the
RADIUS server - at which point it will try the second server.

personally? why do you have a second RADIUS server with the MAC
info? why not consolidate? if not...so you have SQL access to the
other RADIUS server? if so , then you can do a fall-through authentication
eg use local mysql and if that fails, then dont care and hit the second
mysql server eg
change the current SQL config from
stuff detailing your servers etc
stuff detailing the first server
stuff detailing second server
then, instead of calling 'sql' in the auth section, you call
(with the relevant wrapper around it to ensure that if the first
fails, then the second gets called... - check out the docs
