That would be up to proxy_ajp to decide, so yes.

What happens is that when the config says

ProxyPass /myApp ajp://VIRTUALNAME

and the user requests the URL /myApp/index.jsp, proxy will give 
proxy_ajp an URL that looks like this:


It's up to proxy_ajp to understand what that means.

Proxy already loops around and tries again on connection failure to a 
different server in the backend. If proxy cannot handle a 503 or a 400, 
then it can be made to handle it - again it's a feature that would be 
really useful regardless of the protocol.
