Thanks for your email. Marc's reply solved my query. I was totally forgotten
Nagios feature for alerts (my bad).
I had to follow already configured Nagios setting from a production to my
test environment. Even I had the same question in my mind when doing so.
Anyhow this has been fixed now and host notification has been configured as
desired. I really appreciate your efforts.
Thanks and have nice weekend there.

Nevermind, I thought that the you had problems with host check. As Marc
explained this is a feature, and without it a host down would cause a
lot of extra noise.

If you really want it, you could:

1. Make the host do the extensive ping check
2. Make the host do a dummy check (always OK), and possibly make all
other services dependent on the ping service.
3. Move all ping check to a dummy host that is always up.

But I still don't get why you want two different alerts for a down host...
