There's only one level of upstream backup in nginx. Once all primary servers
fail, the balancer switches to backup servers. All backup servers are equal.
One of them is chosen based on the balancing algorithm. If it fails, another
one is chosen and so on, just like it happens with primary servers.

If you want several levels of backup, you still can do it with 'error_page 502'.
Once all servers in your initial location fail (primary + 1st level backup),
error 502 is generated. Then you continue in another location specified in
error_page and repeat proxying with other servers (2nd level backup).
