Yes.  A client should reconnect to another server if that server goes down.

If you could post a few more details, it would the community help enormously

- which client are you using?  (C, Java, ...)

- do you have any client or server logs you could post?  Client code?

- have you verified that the client was told about all of the server cluster
when it connected?
