For versions before 1.2.0, set nice_failback on.

For versions >= 1.2.0, set auto_failback off.

These settings should be the same on both machines.

If you decide you want to move resources around, you can use 
hb_standby to do that.  Starting with 1.2.0, hb_standby gives you some 
more flexibility on how you do that than it did in the past.
