It doesn't matter.
The clients talk to the pound server. Pound proxies every request to a
backend webserver (mod_perl1, mod_perl2, plain apache, mod_ruby, whatever). You
can configure pound to let specific backend servers handle specific
domains, or urls, or a combination. 
The trick is to let multiple backend servers handle requests for a domain.
Pound will notice if a backend server does not respond and takes it
temporarily out of the list of active servers. If you've got enough
redundancy nobody will notice any difference.
