Yep, the drb script actually has a workaround like this:

        # try several times, in case heartbeat deadtime
        # was smaller than drbd ping time
        while true; do
                $DRBDADM primary $RES && break
                let "--try" || exit 20
                sleep 1

So, given the timings mentioned here, this should have worked.
