The init.d/glusterd script has nothing whatsoever to do with the client. It only controls starting/stopping the server. The client is an independent process that is started by mounting and stopped by unmounting.

Shutting down the servers will cause the clients to see "Transport endpoint not connected" errors. It will not "kill" the clients.
