Load Balancing in a sequential order

HI All, there are a number of differnet load balcning methods offer on Big IP, but is there a way to load balancing traffic sequential across a server pool.

Eg. VIP 1 load balancers traffic to a server pool 1

Server Pool 1 has 3 servers S1, S2, S3.

Can I set up a load balancing method, so that all traffic to VIP 1, forwards to S1. If S1 is down, traffic forwards to S2, if S2 is down, traffic forwards to S3. If all 3 servers are down, traffic is dropped.

Not exactly load balancing traffic, but more serving as redundancy for the servers in the pool.

Thank you for any and all suggestions or alternative solutions
