[OpenAFS] vol release atomic?

if I release a volume is the release process atomic?
fs-one /vicepa myvol
fs-one /vicepa myvol.readonly
fs-two /vicepa myvol.replica
what I'm wanting to do is have apache sever a site from afs, and
since I have a readonly on both fileserver apache will be more or
less always serving the files from it's cache. what I like about
this is I can put a new site in the write/read volume and apache will
still server the old site until I release the volume. My main
question is will apache serve from it's cache until the whole
replication has finished? My understanding is that once the volume
has completed the replication the call back is on the whole volume.
the replica/clone on fs-one will probably be complete on it's self
faster than on fs-two. Is that right or is the call back to tell the
clients that their cache is old done once all replicas are finished.
