Explanation:
http://docs.aws.amazon.com/AmazonRDS/latest/UserGuide/Concepts.MultiAZ.html
Failover Process for Amazon RDS:
In the event of a planned or unplanned outage of your DB instance, Amazon RDS automatically switches to a standby
replica in another Availability Zone if you have enabled Multi-AZ. The time it takes for the failover to complete depends
on the database activity and other conditions at the time the primary DB instance became unavailable.
The failover mechanism automatically changes the DNS record of the DB instance to point to the standby DB instance.
As a result, you will need to re-establish any existing connections to your DB instance.
