We have a system using zookeeper 3.0.1 with a Quorum of 3 servers. When we shutdown one of the servers the other two stay active as expected but the clients which were connected to the shutdown server do not attempt to connect to a different zookeeper server. I was under the impression that if a client could not connect to a server it would try a different server and iterate this process until it regained connection to a server. Is this correct?
