The DRBD cluster resource and the Filesystem resource on top of it need
to failover to the other node for the directory to be mounted.

If you are actually trying to create a setup where both systems have
access to the data concurrently, then you will have to install a cluster
filesystem such as e.g. OCFS2 (mounting an ext4 or xfs filesystem on
more than one node at a time will destroy the filesystem), and then
change the cluster configuration to support that kind of setup.
