If you want to speed up failover changes, you can lower the TTL of the record. This shortens the amount of time that resolving nameservers can cache your DNS information. But be aware, the shorter your TTL then the more queries you will be billed for. You aren't billed for queries that hit resolving nameservers, but every time your authoritative nameservers are queries you will be charged.
