why would you reboot the servers? What is the reason? So far in the companies I worked for, a server was only rebooted if it was absolutely necessary. And even then had we some DR (Disatser Recovery) servers where we switched over to. I can't think of a reason for a regulary reboot of a server! A server usually runs as long as possible and companies try to AVOID rebooting servers! It becomes necessary if you for example install a service pack which requires a reboot. But even then would you do this during times with the least traffic!
A regulary reboot schedule doesn't make sense to me! But as I said, if there is a reason for it, then you should look at the reason! Maybe they do it because of something gets initialised during a reboot. But then I would look into this and try to change this process to avoid a reboot.
Hope this helps you!
