I want to setup CUPS to print to a second printer if the default printer is offline for some reason. I have searched but I think my terminology for what I want is not right so not getting far.

You need to set up a printer class that contains a group of printers. It will print in the order of which they are listed in the class. If one is not available it will move to the next.
Pretty good article explaining the process.
