I think it will work either way.

When I added a new master backend I left all the recordings on my old
master backend and just restored a complete mysql dump from the old
master to the new master. Then I went into mythtv-setup and changed
the ip addresses of the master and I was pretty much done. I did have
one problem with this setup. The database log is stuck at the point it
was when I did the transfer. For me there was no NFS share of the
recordings necessary as they will play from one backend to the other
