[logback-user] FallBack Appender and error handler

I previously used log4j with a JMSAppender sending messages to a specific
ActiveMq Queue.
I managed to configure a FallBackErrorHandlor with a second JMSAppender in
case the first JMSAppender was not able to write to the queue.
The ErrorHandler was also configured to send emails when something went

I now want to try logback and wonder if there is a way to get errors
returned by loggers at runtime.
Plesae consider the following situation :

 * Hello world!
public class App
    public static void main( String[] args )
            ... (some code herer)
            Logger log = LoggerFactory.getLogger("myLogger");
            log.debug("App : main");
            System.out.println( "Normal end of my process" );

Let's assume the "myLogger" is configured to use a JMSAppender.
I want to know if the log.debug call failed and then not to display "Normal
end of my process."

1. Is this possible ?
2. How should I handle errors dealing with logback logger ?

Thank you
