Moving the database files in the cluster is purely a SQL Server issue. SharePoint has no knowledge and don't care where the database files are stored. It only knows and cares about being able to connect to a SQL server using the name/alias it knows and find the databases with the names it knows. Where the two SQL servers stores the files is something only they know and care about.

It's pretty simple - if SQL is unavailable during the move, then the SharePoint farm will be unavailable. I suggest working with your DBA team to minimise any downtime.
