Since these mailbox servers are in a cluster I would pin them to the ESX hosts, perhaps when doing vmotion you lose connection for a split second but that is enough to send the cluster into failover mode.  

If a node fails the other node will take over so pinning the VMs to a particular host should work just find.

Is the cluster configured to use a VCO?
