It should work if a single ZEO server is the only client of RelStorage.

In that case, it sounds like you want to set up multiple ZEO servers as
clients of RelStorage. In that configuration, I suspect the ZEO servers
would not update each other reliably.
I haven't tried Zenoss yet, but surely it can be configured to open a
storage other than ZEO.
