Depends on your configuration. IP Multipath (i.e. rerouting) works on
different levels:

a) link level (i.e. bonding)
b) local static routs (i.e. neighbour alive discovery)
c) dyn routing (i.e. RIP/OSPF)

In WAN Situations Interior and Exterior Routing Protocols are used which
find sooner/later a new route to an destionation (if there is one).
