In my experience, that does work, without restarting anything on the client.
I've used cfengine to push out a consistent server list to a bunch of unix
clients, for example. I haven't tested this since upgrading to 7.0 though.

>From what I've seen, that's often related to reverse DNS. The client gets a
connection from some IP, and tries to resolve it into a hostname before
checking the server list (as opposed to going the other way around and
forward-resolving all the hostnames on the server list). You can list IPs in
the server list in case name resolution is completely broken on the client.
