Cluster HA: auto move VMs back to original host

We have client who wants that failed over VMs are migrated back to their original host automatically after it is recovered but based on my research I don’t think it even exists, yet the client insists that they had it working before. They are running vsphere 6.0 with vCenter

Can anyone please confirm if this actually exists in vmware?
