So after 25 seconds does the second RADIUS server get queried?

Yes, it does. The only negative byproduct of this solution is that if both RADIUS servers are available and the user doesn't enter their 2FA within the first 25 seconds, they will receive another 2FA when the 2nd RADIUS server is queried.


But otherwise, if RADIUS server 1 is down, after 25 seconds RADIUS server 2 is queried and the user is able to log in.

Thanks for sharing the solution. I was testing RADIUS failover and it worked after changing the timeout and retries.
