I don't have block devices fail very often, but if you run "systemctl 
list-dependencies nfs-server" you should see your mount points listed as 
dependencies.  For example, I export a filesystem mounted at "/export", 
and I see "export.mount" in the dependency list for that service.  Given 
that, I would expect nfs-server to stop if the "export.mount" systemd 
unit (the /export mount) failed.
