Yes. You can delete one of the replicated folders in DFS Replication group within DFS managment console without losing any data on the share folder on ServerA.

The above operation is just to remove the ServerB from the existing DFS replication group, which won't influence the DFS namespace structure. If needed, you can add another server to be a member of the DFS replication group.
