Hi,

Could someone please explain quickly why logical clock is used in 
FastLeaderElection? It looks to me like the peers can converge on a leader 
(with highest zxid or server id if zxids are the same) even without the logical 
clock. May be I am missing something here, I could not figure out why logical 
clock is needed.

Thanks
Raghu
