How to add a backup default route???

New Contributor
I have 2 layer 3 ICX6610 switches configured in a stack that is acting as our core switch for our enterprise.

We have primary (unreliable) internet connection which serves as our default route for all traffic.

We also have an MPLS connection to our datacenter which also has internet access through the datacenter.

Because our primary internet connection is so unreliable we would like a secondary default route to the MPLS in case the primary goes down.

I HAVE added a the secondary route with a higher admin cost to the MPLS. My question is whether this is the correct way of configuring a secondary backup route???
