You right, this is the typical behaviour for GlusterFS, but it's not 
"reboot tolerant" as if the client (fuse) needs to reconnect to the 
first node and this latter is shut down, thus it will fail.
You gonna say that it's crazy, maybe, but that option of backup vol 
server in GlusterFS isn't as crazy as that to maximize the failover
