Adding a third switch but maintaining redundant paths.

I am in the process of adding a thrid switch to my SAN. I am having problems with the zoning though. I currently have two sixteen port switchs running in parallel for redundancy. I want to add the third switch and still maintain the same redundant setup. Simply put I want to zone one half of the new 8 port switch to one of the existing 16 port switchs, and zone the other half of the new 8 port switch to the other existing 16 port switch. that way still maintaning two seperate paths to each device. (see attached drawing)
