The array redirects the client to the least utilized interface. The 
client doesn't have to choose itself. In case a link goes down I am not 
sure what happens. I suppose that the client will be trying to reconnect 
to the initial pool ip address and gets redirected to a working 
interface from there. Depending on your timeout settings you will have 
filesystems problems or not.

In this case I think that the array gives a redirect order to one of the 
new interfaces prior to completely removing the old array.
