That depends on the particular engineering that is done (or not done) between a given retrieving site and a given source of information. If remote information is cached or indexed, then it should be available (as of the date of the cache or index) when the remote site isn't. If it has been made accessible from more than one access point, then an alternate could pick up the trail. Otherwise, perhaps not. Keep in mind that good network architecture (in this context) suggests the provision of a network of caches and indexes, so that no one institution has to bear the work of "caching the Web". This is discussed very interestingly in Roy Fielding's famous dissertation on the technical architecture of the Web [1], although he doesn't discuss indexing in particular.

It's a little like what you might find when your bank's website goes down. If you have off-line copies of your account data, you may turn to them. But the bank's records are still the most authoritative information, even when they aren't available to you.
