This document provides basic instructions for configuring Server side (versus client)  TAF or Transparant Application Failover. 

Server side TAF settings override client-side counterparts that might be configured in TNS connect descriptors. If TAF is not configured on the client side, then at a minimum, the failover type must be set to enable TAF. If the failover type is set on the server side, then the failover method will default to BASIC. Delay and retries are optional and may be specified independently.
