If the master becomes unavailable then a slave is promoted to take its
place. Message replication between slaves and the master happens
internally and automatically. As long as the queue is declared as
mirrored, the publisher is not required to take any action to republish
messages to slaves.

Active-active mirrored queues are recommended instead of the
active-passive approach, because it does not require additional software
and the failover process is quicker.
