Rsync behaviour on harddisc crash

I was just pondering:
Lets look at Server A with one extra harddisc hdb, where hdb1 is mounted at /mnt/folder.
/mnt/folder is the folder which should be mirrored on Server B.
So Server B rsyncs
rsynch -a -delete server::folder /folder
from Server A and gets all the new files and deletes all the files, which doesn't exist on Server A's /mnt/folder anymore.
What would happen, if the harddisc hdb would fail?
Will this happen?:
harddisc hdb failes
hdb1 is not automatically mounted at /mnt/folder
Server B rsyncs from Server A, but /mnt/folder is empty, so rsync deletes every file in the mirror folder on Server B?
Are my assumptions correct?
Thanks in advance,
