  You don't.  You configure the "passwd" module to read passwords from
the different files.  The server will then use the password to
authenticate the user.

  To select which passwd module to use, and which passwd file to read,
see doc/Autz-Type.

  I would suggest copying the passwd files between the servers, unless
there's some other interaction I'm not aware of.
