That is the expected behaviour when the queue is declared as 'durable'.

While a queue's "home" node is down, clients connected to other nodes 
and attempting to re-declare the queue will get a 404-NOT_FOUND.

If other nodes were able to re-declare such queues they would then 
conflict with the original queue when that gets recovered.
