Using multiple connections at once is fraught with problems in the first place (see the complexities of teaming and bonding nics) but you can do a simple failover system using Babeld + Wireguard

Althea uses this for failover. In earlier versions of Wireguard it was quite bad (60 second switch times) but more recently handshake re-negotiation is triggered on the fly.

The whole process for Babel to detect the failure, reroute to some other Babeld node advertising the same IP and then for that Wireguard server and the client to renegotiate and get traffic flowing takes only a few seconds (about 5 in my experience).
