With apache in place, you _never_ go to the JBoss port again.  Always go through apache.  It monitors the server states and directs traffic accordingly.  Apache knows server 1 is dead, so it sends all traffic to server 2.  If both server 1 and server 2 are alive, it load balances reuqests between the 2 servers.

You have this notion that a dead jboss server can do something.  If the server process is dead, it is non-existent and can not do anything. 
Apache and Mod_jk do the management piece of the puzzle.

Keep hitting the apache port and watch the requests failover to the remaining "live" server.
