Backup mail server

I am looking to setup a backup mail server, just in case my primary mail
server fails.  I am using Postfix.  There is some good information here,
on how to setup a backup mail server:

The question I have is that there doesn't appear to be any way to
indicate how many attempts the backup mail server should make at sending
email to the primary mail server before giving up, and also the delay
between attempts.  Is this configurable with Postfix?
