NFS mount in /etc/fstab - race condition?

I have several boxes with the following line in /etc/fstab:

    garcon:/export/home       /home   nfs     rsize=1024,wsize=1024
0       0

It works as expected on all my boxes, except for the fastest one,
which does not mount /home on boot.  I'm guessing the system is
trying the mount on /home before nfs has completely woken up.

If I ssh into the box and do a:

    sudo mount -a

then all is well until the next reboot.
