I suggest NOT to use fstab but systemd startups if you on debian jessie.
Get to know systemd and if you do i’ll bet you like it.
I know only on that hates it.. dont you Rowland. ;-)
Have look here for a good example for mount and automount.
and if you do need fstab, that example shows what your missing.
I used that link also for my NFSv4 Kerberos automounts as example.
And i can say works great.
