No. root.afs just acts as an anchor for all your other volumes. As such, it is 
more or less empty (it usually only contains the mount points for root.cell, 
which in turn contains a tree of your data volumes).

As others already wrote in this thread, to move data from one server to 
another, you can either

vos move all volumes located on server A to server B (I guess this is the 
preferred method, as it works w/o downtime) or

use rsync to copy your /vicepX partitions from A to B.
