From the wiki page i wrote today :

"The client configuration is very simple and, in fact, identical on
each client. It is in this configuration where the RRDNS hostname comes
into play - the remote-host is, in this case, defined as
cluster.storagenet.gfs. When the Gluster client process does a lookup
on cluster, it will store both responses in its cache, then randomly
choose one to actually use. If the server becomes inaccessible, the
Gluster client will wait for the period of time defined by
transport-timeout, then automatically attempt to use the other response
in the cache. See this thread from the Gluster mailing list for more

The thread noted above links here :

And, yes, it works.  I have tested it thoroughly. :)  I would heavily
suggest reading through the list archives for the month of April for
further details...
