Looking for feedback on JS script that automatically tries China CDN when main CDN fails.

I have created the following script in an attempt to automatically load the China CDN if the Main CDN fails to load. The idea is to provide a single script that will work globally including users in China from the same page..

<script type="text/javascript">
a='//tags.tiqcdn.com/utag/account-name/profile/prod/utag.js';
b=document;c='script';d=b.createElement(c);d.src=a;d.type='text/java'+c;d.async=true;
d.onerror = function() {
    a='//tags.tiqcdn.cn/utag/account-name/profile/prod/utag.js';
    b=document;c='script';d=b.createElement(c);d.src=a;d.type='text/java'+c;d.async=true;
    a=b.getElementsByTagName(c)[0]; a.parentNode.insertBefore(d,a);
}
a=b.getElementsByTagName(c)[0]; a.parentNode.insertBefore(d,a);
</script>

I am looking for feedback on potential issues anyone could see with the above method not working on browsers or mobiles.

Right now users in China will get a DNS error on the .com version of the tag, but not for the .cn version. We have confirmed this. Surprisingly these issues only exist with TealiumIQ. The .com on Tealium Collect seems to work without issue.
