My impression from actual use is that one or the other server is
actually down for a few hours or sometimes days at a time.  As long as
at least one of them is up, the service itself is logically available.
The "solution" is just what you're already doing, or something such as
what others have already suggested.

Another, and rather simple, solution to this problem is:

cd ~/News/marks
ln -s    [or vice versa]
