I'm wondering if Debian has the resources (DSA, local admins and
hardware) to have a hot-swappable backup machine for ftpmaster, since
it does go down occasionally and when it does the downtime is fairly
disruptive to Debian.

Hmmm, OK. There don't seem to be any other machines hosted in the same
place so having another machine that is used for other stuff most of
the time and also as a backup ftp-master during outages wouldn't work,
for now at least.
