Make sure mod_rewrite is loaded and add a rule like so:

RewriteEngine On
RewriteRule /login.html http://other.server.domain/login_url [R]

which will redirect all occurences to that page.  Or you could proxy the
connection through to the other server, making it transparent for the
end user:

RewriteRule /login.html http://other.server.domain/login_url [P]

The documentation for mod_rewrite will give you all the details, and
probably a few more ideas as well.
