Yeah, we achieved something similar using a simple "VIP". Once the leader election switches, the new leader can activate the VIP, while the old one deactivates it. DNS with a very short TTL is another way to achieve this.

Yes, what you have just described is a sweet spot for Zookeeper.
Based on your description, you want one of the servers as the leader and while having the others waiting. Take a look at "Leader Election Recipe"
in ZK Tutorials for how to implement this. If the leader goes offline then the other machines use ZK to run the election procedure and elect a new leader to serve requests. Of course, you will also need a "router" service that also listens to ZK so that it can redirect the requests to the right machine.
