You don’t need to worry about BOND00 failing. If you have at least one link of its members up it will be working. In case it stucks it is better to do a restart rather that thinking how to failover with the wan links.
I might be a little tired now and not completely understand what you have and what you want to achieve so please if you could draw a picture of your wanna-have network.

My question was about bridging (not bonding). Basically I don’t think there was a good way to do quite what I wanted so I ended up going about it a different way (just have a second VPN connection for accessing our local network that goes over the bonded VPN connetion) instead of having everything bridged to give uses behidn the ZS box direct access to the network on the otherside as if they were plugged directly into the switch. This worked but unfortunately it would break the internet connection on the clients (which required the VPN/bridge to have internet access) if the bonded VPN connectino went down for some reason so I decided going the two VPN route is much better for what I want.
