Is the clustered configuration using a VPN or an internet connection between
the nodes? That is discouraged for this very reason I believe: connection
troubles will confuse everything.

When you think about it a bit it becomes obvious that distribution over remote
hosts only makes sense for serving static data like with HTTP and FTP servers.
For Jabber you'd rather have everything on one LAN.
