Home server failure messages

If using RADSEC why not use the status-server check (low level check not a
user/pass check - though a false user etc will give a reject which means
the server is okay)... Or maybe the server is fine and the issue is
elsewhere (talking to a proxy that might have problems upstream?)

Correctly configured the server should fail over to the next available home
server (and with RADSEC only use the failed one when it's been checked and
responding again)
