No. That's talking about when you use FreeRADIUS to forward packets onto another RADIUS server.

FreeRADIUS cannot tell the Access Point about alternative RADIUS servers in the same cluster. It's not supported by the protocol.

You need to configure them manually on each Access Point.

If you want redundancy try using something like VRRP or Anycast.
