[Gluster-users] Glusterd refuses to start if a peer doesn't DNS-resolve

I'm using gluster 3.4.0~qa9realyalpha2-1 (Debian experimental package).

1 volume, 2 hosts, "replica 2".

If I use names instead of IP addresses and a peer name does not
resolve, glusterd refuses to start, end exit.

On the contrary, if DNS resolution works, but the peer is down, or if
I use IP addresses (and the peer is down), glusterd starts normally!

Is this difference in behavior normal? Is it a bug? Shouldn't a failed
DNS resolution (for a peer in a replica-set) be trated just like the
event of that peer being down?

Here's an excerpt from glusterd --debug output (gluster1 is the name
of the remote peer):
