Proxy, cluster or something else?

I have a question regarding mysql servers setup. Hope some of you can give me some insight. Thank you so much in advance! Here is my question:

I have two MySQL servers: A & B (A and B can be two groups of servers, for simplicity, let's just say "A" and "B" are single servers).

At any time, only A or B is accessible by clients. For instance, A is running and accessible by clients through a proxy/cluster. Then at a prescheduled time during the day, B will be updating itself from a 3rd party data provider. Once B completes the updating, it will plug itself back into the proxy/cluster and accessible by clients and A will unplug itself from the proxy/cluster. Then next day, A and B will be doing the exact same thing again, meaning A will update itself, plug itself back into the proxy/cluster once the updating is done and B will unplug itself.

What is the best way to achieve what I want to do above? I look through the Proxy documentation, I can't see anyway that I can dynamically plug and unplug MySQL servers. Cluster doesn't allow it either. I can write a script to achieve it, but I would like to see if I can use any existing MySQl features/tools that can fulfill my need.

Thanks a lot!

Best Regards,
