Next upstream based on custom http code

Here is my flow: client - nginx - upstream - real upstream
Upstream is getting the response from the 'real' upstream. So if real
upstream is wrong, nginx will get standard 5xx from upstream and in this
case I don't really want nginx to try next upstream because it will hit the
same bad real upstream with the same error code. In other cases where real
upstream is good but one upstream is having too much load or wants to
finish up in flight requests then go down for maintenance , is it possible
for upstream to send a soft error code to nginx to tell it try next
