I think that sounds reasonable, but there may be reasons for that logic.
I've Cc'd the erc mailing list to see whether they have any comments...

This is the function that determines whether to reconnect, and the
suggestion is to remove the line about erc-server-error-occurred:

(defsubst erc-server-reconnect-p (event)
  "Return non-nil if ERC should attempt to reconnect automatically.
EVENT is the message received from the closed connection process."
  (or erc-server-reconnecting
      (and erc-server-auto-reconnect
           (not erc-server-banned)
           (not erc-server-error-occurred)
           ;; make sure we don't infinitely try to reconnect, unless the
           ;; user wants that
           (or (eq erc-server-reconnect-attempts t)
               (and (integerp erc-server-reconnect-attempts)
                    (< erc-server-reconnect-count
           (or erc-server-timed-out
               (not (string-match "^deleted" event)))
           ;; open-network-stream-nowait error for connection refused
           (if (string-match "^failed with code 111" event) 'nonblocking t))))
