No.  If the fileserver (box A) goes down, none of the files/volumes
there are available.

Yes, but the RO volume will need to be on a second fileserver (box C) in
order to be available if box A goes down.  If you create a RO volume on
the same machine, that will help if you loose the partition that holds
the RW volume, but won't help if the whole thing crashes.
