    Yes. At least that's how Solaris, Irix, HP/UX, and several others do it. The
    general rule is something along the lines of "if /a is exported, anything that
    is a subdirectory of /a is accessible via NFS, so long as it is on the same
    device (partition - actually major/minor pair)". So, if /export/home in your
    case lives in the same file system as /export, it is accessible via NFS
    as well. Now if /export/home is it's own mount point (i.e. a separate file
    system), then it needs to be exported explicitly.

    This works as well, with the caveat that you cannot then mount /export itself
    on client machines.
