As far as I know there isn't any facility available for such backend failure recovery. And I don't know if there ever will be 
one (maybe Bert can comment on this?).

It should be. I haven't tried it though, on unix it works using the pdns_control program, and that is available on Windows 
too. :)

>Does the pipebackend module work on Windows?

No, the there are only two backends for the Windows version, the ODBC backend and the Generic ODBC backend, 
the former is deprecated and probably won't be available anymore in 2.9.7.
