Does 301 redirect block SE's

When a 301 redirect is used to redirect a URL to another server/site, do SE's jump from the 301'd site to the new server/site and crawl, or do that stop at the 301'd location?

Most do.

And they generally update the index with the URL of the new location.

Here is Google's take on it:

Thanks for the feedback. I had to use a 301 redirect for a little while (a week or two)... but now have the DNS "A" files pointing to the new server location. If googlebot came along during that time, would my original URL now be lost (no longer crawled)?

I had it redirected like:

redirect 301 / [otherurl.com...]

Now my original (long time standing) url is pointed to the new server space. I'm pretty green at this and wondering if I screwed things up bad by using the redirect.

Thanks for the help!
