Question Trying to understand DFS mount & symbolic links

We have 5 servers mounted to the same DFS mount point. At this mount point, several sub-directories are required. We do not have access to the DFS file system to create these directories on DFS itself.

Can I physically create these sub-directories on 1 of the 5 servers, then create symbolic links from the other 4 servers' mount points to each of the sub-directories that were created on the first server?

Can I create 1 symbolic link on each server that will automatically allow access to the sub-directories of the directory it is linking to? Or does symbolic links have to be a one to one correlation to the targeted sub-directories?
