This scenario is exceedingly common in doubles and even more so at higher level doubles. The returner is usually focused on returning the serves while the partner is more responsible for calling the service line. This leads to many returns of long serves over the course of a long match - it is simply unavoidable. Yet somehow no one seems to take this particularly to heart. If on a particular instance it leads to an unusual delay, you give them 2 and start over. Not a big deal and if someone just keeps wailing away on obviously out serves they'll just seem like a total tool - to all three other players on the court.
