I've used this method for years, with all my dumps going to a primary
disk, and then rsync to a secondary one.  I keep a copy of all my
level 0 dumps (which I do once or twice a year) forever, and then
prune the higher numbered dumps as they become obsolete.

The rsync allows me to recover more easily if a machine fails, I just
mount the backup partition off the backup machine...
