Bruce Guenter's relay-ctrl package (http://untroubled.org/relay-ctrl) is far 
better suited for this style of setup, and is safe to use over NFS (I know, 
I've done it) and doesn't require rebuilding a CDB for every authentication,

that's one way you could do it.  Or you could run a 1 minute cron job to rsync 
the cdb file to the other servers, or a number of other things.  However, I 
think you'll be much happier overall with relay-ctrl.
