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 in debugging your problems. Notably: - 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?
