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. > Another (somewhat related) question.

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.
