It's both, really.
artificial = it doesn't exist before the first nfs mount
fake = from the remote machine it's an imitation of the real /home
filesystem on the other machine. It looks like /home, it smells like
/home, it tastes like /home, but if you eat it you get no calories/joule.
The point is: if it is not there (before the first nfs mount!) it
shouldn't be there! Think of it as stepping into a broken elevator (door
open, elevator not on the same level). The door opening is usually
prohibited in such a case by some internal security measures. However, if
it were to open nevertheless there is a chance that you don't recognize
fast enough and step into it and splash ... That's exactly how nfs
behaves, it's an elevator without that safety net.
