Yes, fallback MX is pretty standard. Run dig mx gmail.com and you'll see an example.

However, there is often no real need for it, because mail servers queue mail for a few days anyway, and there are extra problems you'll introduce having a fallback, one being that it's always hit harder by spammers, because its security it often less stringent.
