Trying multiple backends for a resource

Seems like the fallback director is what I want, if I can get it to try to continue trying on 404.
I could possibly map 404 to 503(temp unavailable)

No problem at all.

I´ve got multiple backends which each might have the file I´m requesting.

Would it be possible to configure varnish in such a way that is tries multiple backends and uses the first one it finds with a 200 response ?
