[OpenAFS] Working with 3 vlservers, I purposely disabled one to test queries take longer with afs01 removed

Yes that is what I am seeing. I was wondering if there was a way to
tweek the timeout.

The clients take the list of vlservers, sort them by their distance in
the IP address space and then randomize them a bit. The end result is
that if you have three VLDB servers, one third of your clients should
have each one first in the list.
For the third in which the down server is first in the list, the clients
will have to timeout the server before it will fail over to the second
server in the list.
Is that what you are seeing? or something else?
