VIP can failover to other nodes in case of any node ejection or NIC problems.
But if you use different than VIP for LOCAL LISTENER then it will not fail over.
Why would you want to do this? What is the value of RAC without failover?
Sounds like you are trying to mix 9i RAC configuration with 11gR2. You should be using SCAN with 11gR2.
Read and follow the document to properly configure your environment. You might also take some time to read the documentation on RAC concepts.
