You can use multiple NICs in AFS fileserver machine - by default the AFS
server listens on every interface. Every client maintains a priority list of
all the NICs of all the fileserver it's using (hint: 'fs getserverprefs').
This list can be modified manually (on the client) and will default to
prioritize nearer NICs (NICs that can be reached without additional
routers) higher. You don't need any modification in a CellServDB.
