How many servers do you have that this is a concern?
Have you considered just putting perlbal or a load-balancer appliance
between varnish and your backend servers? Then the dedicated device
can take care of load-balancing, fail-over and all that fun - and you
can use the management systems there to take backend servers in and
out. Varnish then will just have to do what it does so well, caching.
