Kind of depends. I'm sure the first thing they would want to try is removing the rust if it is just on the surface. I would want them to put some sort of protection in that area after, whether it is new paint/powdercoat. If it comes back, then I would request a replacement part.
Have you determined if your battery is leaking? If so, be sure to use baking soda to neutralize it before cleaning it up.
