You misunderstood. I was referring to system cronjob's mail reports
from cron.daily jobs like security reports et al. Those reports
normally run at identical times.

Yes. I never loved the idea of a clusterfs for my small mail servers,
I always considered such clusterfs an overkill. Well, my servers do
reside in the same housing building, thus it could be done without
performance loss. But a scenario of worldwide distributed mail servers
desires a dsync/replicator scheme, IMHO ;-)
