umount -f /mountpoint, and remount it.  The only thing I know of that
can cause an entire mountpoint to go stale is if the server gets
rebooted with a new kernel and it can't determine which filesystem an
incoming request is for.  Connectivity issues shouldn't cause this.

Just bounce nfsd after changing nfs_server_flags in rc.conf.
