The steps for doing that are explained below

Step 1 :

Step 2:

Create an Email Notification Alert and specify the above-mentioned Email Recipient Macro, email subject, message etc. as shown in the figure below

Step 3:

Configure the SQL Server Logon Rule as Prerequisite Rule

If the Prerequisite Rule fails, email Alerts are send to the email IDs specified in the Email Recipient Macro

Following screenshots shows the configuration of Prerequisite Rule and email Alert escalation
