I don't know about ejabberd clusters, but it can happen that if a
foreign server goes down unexpectedly, you will continue to see the
users from that server as online because you never received unavailable
presence from them. I don't know of any ejabberd configuration options
that help to mitigate this problem (e.g., ejabberd could periodically
ping the foreign domain and if it is down, it could toggle the available
bit for all those foreign users). Maybe ejabberd mavens know more than I
do about how ejabberd does (or could) handle this.
