Not in system with only two servers. That is the principle of synchronous
replication, as Lucas pointed out.
However, if you add second slave to the system, you can list it's name in
synchronous_standby_names parameter and it becomes a potential.
That means if you synchronous slave is not available, the potential
synchronous slave is used.
That way you are not loosing write capabilities on master.
Hope this helps.
