Yes, servers last down and first up.

I do recommend autofs.service in the clients.
It does mount a path only when something tries to access that path.
It does also automatically unmount, if path has not been used for a while.
Systemd has an automounter too, but it does not unmount idle paths like autofs. (Didn't, when I did last check.)
