Install milter-sender on the 3rd server using an Internet host:port
specifier instead of the unix domain socket specifier, then specify in
the Sendmail config for the two MXes that they should consult
milter-sender via an Internet socket to the 3rd machine.
In this way you can centralise the cache used by milter-sender. NOTE
that a copy of the access.db should be found on the 3rd server or
accessible by NFS for B/W list support.
ANY milter (not just Snert milters) can be centralised in this manner,
since its a base functionality of libmilter and Sendmail.
See the milter-sender documentation and sendmail libmilter documentation
