Thanks for the info. I added a content script check to my alteons, checking for the length of a particular object through http. This should eliminate any major mishaps I guess.

So my setup ended up being :

VarnishServer1        VarnishServer2
      |                     |
AppServer1            AppServer2

If VarnishServer1 or 2 fails the alteon falls back to using the relevant appserver directly instead.. 

Looking forward to see how this performs under load. I have high expectations for Varnish actually :)
