That won't work because the same physical storage needs to be mounted in the
same place on both machines. What you currently have described has two
different physical locations mounted to the same place on both machines. As
the previous poster stated, you would need something like this:

Master backend:
  /mnt/master/video/recordings - this is local
  /mnt/slave/video/recordings - this is NFS
Slave backend:
  /mnt/master/video/recordings - this is NFS
  /mnt/slave/video/recordings - this is local
