The mount will not die as long as you have atleast one server up in each replicate pair. The mount will _fail_, however, if server1 is offline at the time of mounting. You can work-around that by setting up a DNS name that round-robins across all server. Or you could hack up a script that pings a server before selecting it for the mount.
