I am pretty sure that this behavior is caused by some other component in
the system. DRBD does not decide on its own that now is a good time to
run a drbdsetup wait-connect-resource command for no apparent reason.
Obviously, if the other node is not online, then wait-connect-resource
will fail.

That's a workaround. The real question is why your system is
intentionally running a command that is completely unnecessary and that
is guaranteed to fail if one node is not online. The solution would be
not running the command when you actually want to access the storage
device while its replication link is down.
