Ok, I wasn't clear enough.
Do you have a single RAIDZ10 or multiple RAIDZ1 ?
In a single RAIDZ10, if you totally loose a mirror (thus, both disks 
from the same RAIDZ1 set), you loose the whole RAID10.

As you are using Gluster, is much better to use multiple RAIDZ1, each 
set as a single bricks. Gluster will aggregate space, so
you'll get the same space as a single RAIDZ10, but in case of a mirror 
failure, you have to recover only that single mirror.
