I don't think you ever said if this was two links from the same provider, or two different providers. That's a huge factor in what your options are. 

You'll have a hard time doing BGP-based failover with a /26. It's just too small a route to be announced globally. 

This stuff isn't just a technical question, but also one of policy and politics. In order to get to a proper solution, your best option is probably to give the provider(s) a call, and explain what you'd like to do. 

Depening on a lot of things, one option could be to have the provider owning the IP(s) tunnel it over the other link durin fault. Hard to say if they will, so you really nedd to talk to them. 

In the meantime, DNS-failover is a lot better than nothing.
