If I understand well, the feature you want is : if authentifcation
succeeds connect to good_server else connect to fake_server.

The check for authentification is done in file verify.c. The functions
return 1 if authentication succeeds and 0 if it fails. This features
rely on openssl backend and are specified in

IMHO, if you want to implement your feature, I think you can patch stunnel to:
- in file verify.c
  * maintain your own error storage variable
  * make the verify functions always return 1
- in client.c, function init_remote, connect on selective host
depending on your own error variable (good_server or fake_server).
- in options.c : add the new option connect_fake option in services section.

I'm a little too busy to implement this shortly.
