Otherwise you'll get most of your ham going to the first box, and most
of the spam to the second.

In that case, Bayes will be terrible on the second box because it will
be starved of ham.
To avoid this you have two options:

1. put the bayes database on a central NFS server and export the directories to both MX servers

2. store the bayes database in MySQL and configure both MX server to query that MySQL database.
