I have only one partition on one server, and the volume is (AFAIK) not
replicated.  Interesting fact I found out later: the directory does
appear on the client-side in the /afs/.myserver/ directory.  

Further investigation on the server side pronounced that the mount
points didn't exist in the /afs/myserver directory: 
myserver:~# fs rmmount /afs/myserver/served1 
fs:'/afs/myserver/served1': Not a directory

Yet everything seems to be peachy keen now that I have put something
into the directory, I can list the files on the server side through
/afs/myserver/served1 but still can't see /afs/myserver/served1 or
/afs/myserver/served2 on the client side with `ls /afs/myserver`.
