When a client access a DFS share the target folder is retrieved (it could be any
target if there are more than one). The client the access the share using the
resolved UNC name. The permissions are the same as those that would apply if the
user went straight to the UNC name without using the DFS path.
The configuration you have described is a disaster. Neither user will get a
consistent result. Furthermore there is an assumption that the two folders 1 and
2 are going to be identical.
There is a document "How DFS works" on the MS DFS site, read it.

\\server1\shared1 - overall permission is users1 can read
\\server2\shared2 - overall permission is users2 can write
Both users1 and users2 see the same set of folders displayed. Say server2 is
offline. When users2 see files in server1 target via the
\\domain_namespace\alldoc, does the ORIGINAL permission applies ?
