Able to mount a file sysetm on 2 servers

We have a clustered system ( oracle RAC ) but the /backups filesystem is
from a storage array , and is independent of the cluster.
I was under the impression that UFS would not let you mount a filsystem on 2
servers. I thought the mounted state was written in the superblock , and
when the second server tried to mount it it would read the superblock and
realise it was already mounted.
I've just discovered that this filesystem can in fact be mounted on 2
servers with no problem .
Have I got it wrong ??
