With an ACE SM in the cat65k configured in routed mode and the real servers' defaul gateway being the server side Layer 3 VLAN int on the ACE, when the real server initiates the connection, does it go to the MSFC-ACE-server side Layer 3 VLAN int or does it somehow hit the Layer 3 VLAN int on the ACE without going thru MSFC?

It depends what ip address is configured as default gateway on the server.

If ACE, it will go to ACE.

And the problem is that the response will probably bypass ACE if the MSFC is attached to the server vlan.

You should not configure the MSFC interface on the server vlan.  Let the ACE route between servers and MSFC.
