To add more clarity: After both servers respond to the LOOKUP, if both of them are good copies it will choose whichever responded first.  If the mount is on same machine it sends subsequent STAT/READ etc to local brick. Otherwise the one which has the good copy is chosen as the "read-child" and all subsequent requests like STAT, READ will be sent to that.
