upstream timeouts

Never mind this question. 

I noticed that we had a "proxy_next_upstream timeout" line in the config file which was causing nginx to not resend the request to the next upstream when one upstream was completely down!

I got a quick question.

If I define a couple of servers in an upstream, and one of them fails, does Nginx re-send the request(s) for which a response from that upstream was not received to the other server, or is that request doomed?
