    Hi everyone,
    Is there any way to update only one 'A' record of one DNS zone of one domain in ISPConfig 3 programmatically via php script?

    I'm searching for a way so the DNS protocol can naturally hold a 2nd ip adress for an A record as backup, When searching for this I only saw results on backup nameservers (NS records).

    If there is a way for DNS to support backup A records, so that users will be directed to a working server in case the primary server is not responding?

    yes, by using ispconfig remote api: V

    You can have multiple A-Records in DNS, that's called round-robin DNS. But this means that clients get directed randomly to both servers as DNS can not detect if the target of the a-record might have a failure. so what you are seeking is more a load balancer which detects the availability of services than dns.
