yes, a dag must always have an odd number of node (at least three) and the majority of those nodes must remain in communication for the cluster (DAG) to remain online
the more members the more "downed" nodes you can survive

3 servers could fail
7 node cluster
you can always fail (x-1)/2 node failure

(7-1)/2 = 3 :)

yes, just use the formula
x = the number of servers in the dag

(x-1) divided by 2

you can never have an even number
when there is an even number of mailbox servers then active manager adds a file share witness to make it an odd number
