didn't check, may be you know, is the second healthy pair in cluster/stripe
(if two bricks are used to stripe) in the case to be copied too? (of course
afr'ed volumes use the same underlying cluster/stripe configuration)

yes, it is a paranoia but I said about rsync'ing with --checksum added,
metadata of a corrupted file can be correct, so rsync'ing will take more or
as much time (two replicas are checksum'ed) as checksum'ing corrupted
replica and comparing with checkum kept in an extended attribute(s)
