Root domain 2 ip's - will cloudflare determine which A record is up?

I am moving websites from one ip to another.

Let’s say I have domain.com, in cloudflare dns, can I set 2 @ root a records to let’s say

@ IP 1 - 1.1.1.1
@ IP2 - 2.2.2.2

If my one web server can accept traffic on both those ip’s, and 1.1.1.1 stops accepting requests on that ip, from dns propogation, not a server going down, will cloudflare automatically route traffic to 2.2.2.2?

If the DNS records are proxied, Cloudflare will randomly choose which IP to send requests to. If that one doesn’t respond it will try the other. See…
