NFS exporting mounted msdosfs subdir

A quick search on the internet shows that people use msdosfs with NFS, at least on NetBSD (sorry):
My FreeBSD mount also shows that the msdosfs mount point is NFS exported. So, from the side of whether nfsd supports msdosfs, I am convinced.
Any further idea for this error:
