ADFS-failover PrimaryServer to Secondary.

Active Directory Federation Services can be installed in a farm.

There can be maximum of 5 ADFS-servers in a farm using locally installed SQL Express. When You add in the sixth, You will have to install Full SQL-Server instance for it.

http://INTERNAL_FQDN_OF_ADFS_Server/adfs/probe or ip-address.
