Usually MaxScale high availability is achieved by running two instances of MaxScale on separate servers. A higher level load balancer then needs to handle the case when the master MaxScale is unresponsive.
Usually this is done by using Corosync/Pacemaker or Keepalived. Here's an article on how to set up MaxScale HA with Corosync/Pacemaker: https://mariadb.com/resources/blog/mariadb-maxscale-high-availability-active-standby-cluster
