VPN Server list/backup server option

I am using openconnect with a VPNC connection on a point-to-point network that (by design) is slightly inconsistent. This means that the connection to the primary server is lost occasionally. I would like to be able to configure openconnect to "fall back" to a secondary server when the connection to the primary server is lost, but have not found a way to do this. Does OpenConnect support this feature?

If not, an alternative that I have thought of (but not yet tested) would be to make simultaneous VPN connections to the primary and secondary servers and bond the created tunnel interfaces. Do you think this would work?

Thank you,
