You probably need a custom script and either a Custom Script Sensor or Custom Script (Advanced) Sensor for that to check the welcome message of the server. If you're able to run scripts on either server via cron, the HTTP Push Data (Advanced) can receive input from other servers that send data periodically. Probably the easier way :)

Kind regards,
