Possibly, although register.com does not allow this. Maybe other DNS
hosting companies do...

DYNDNS.com is a company that does what you are looking for, to a degree.
They provide a back-up DNS service but under the assumption that they
are backing up your server. I should not be that difficult to setup
delegation with your primary DNS provider.
Why not just add multiple Names servers from multiple providers under
your Domain Registration?
