Yes, for DNS you need a way to reroute the IP to a “live” box.

If your network supports it, anycast with BGP is a popular choice and will allow you to to do load balancing and failover to a separate location (as Chris explained).

If the dnsdist servers are on the same network segment, carp (BSD) or vrrp (lots of equipment, keepalived) work well.
