It does work. The glusterfs process that's NFS server is, in turn, also 
a client of the other bricks in the cluster. When you use NFS, 
replication (or distribution or stripe) is performed by the NFS servers, 
not by the client.

The NFS server of every brick in the cluster does this, so it doesn't 
matter which brick you NFS mount.
