Are you sure about that? If Zookeer doesn't run with four nodes, that means
a running ensemble of three can't be live-migrated to other nodes (because
that's done by increasing the ensemble and then reducing it in the case of
3-node ensembles). IIRC, you can run four Zookeeper nodes, but that means
quorum will be three nodes, so there's no added benefit in terms of
availability since you can only loose one node just like with a three node
