Changing the referer is not sufficient, if you use a different name then
kerberos authentication will fail. You'd have to create a new key for
the new name and distribute it to both server's http keytab so they can
decrypt incoming requests.
However your load balancer then also needs to stick with one server for
all requests coming from the same client, because we use session cookies
to maintain authentication and we do not share them between servers.
