correct. a new server will NOT add space in this manner. But the
original Q was about rebalancing after adding a 4th server. If you are
using distributed/replication, then yes, a new server with be adding a
portion of it's space to add more space to the cluster.
But in a purely replica mode, nope.

Every time you stop a school, you will have to build a jail. What you
gain at one end you lose at the other. It's like feeding a dog on his
own tail. It won't fatten the dog.
