DFS and Name Space question

Hey guys

Hopefully an easy one for you.  I have a client who has two servers onsite and one server offsite.  He setup DFS replication and Name Spaces on his 2012 R2 servers.  He set one server to be the main one so its Replication folders are read/write.  He made the other two servers to be Read Only.  He did the second part to avoid conflicting files.  Now, he asked me a fairly simple question and I hope you guys can answer it for me.  What if server 1 fails (the Read/Write server) and its down for an extended period of time.  How would he go about making one of the other Replicating folders a Read/Write folder?  Is this something that would be done in DFS Management?
