You can allow ECS to run an additional server while deploying, so it creates a new instance, drains the connections to the old one, then kill it: stackoverflow.com/questions/407311...

This is good to know. I have no doubt that if I understood ECS better I could do deployments with zero downtime. But after spending dozens of hours debugging ECS only to realize the problem wasn't with ECS, it was with my VPC not having DNS set up properly, I've basically lost confidence in AWS documentation and debuggability and I'm trying out simpler solutions like the one in this post.
