How to change to another host agent if the current agent goes down

Hello all, I am curious how to handle the above scenario. I am running a JOBS on a server group, and was wondering if there is a way to handle the event that an agent goes down and the status is set to "Waiting for Agent" (or something along those lines).

As of now, the simple way is to go to the activities window, edit the object, change the host, and restart the task. However, in the next few months when there are 300+ workflows running, I will not have the time to go in and complete this process for each JOBS in the event an agent goes down.

I know as of right now, the host group is set to choose "Any" of the two that are in use, but upon activation I do not believe it will switch dynamically. Is this possible to accomplish? or is the manual restart necessary?

Thank you all!
