My previous attempts to adjust the policy accordingly have unfortunately failed. Currently I have adjusted the config so that the accounting message is written locally in a log and replied to a second accounting server in parallel via the detail reader. Since there is no Radius service running there, there will be no response. Unfortunately, FreeRadius then first declares this server as a zombie and then as dead.

  The server always expects an answer when you proxy packets.  If you want "fire and forget", use the "replicate" module.  See mods-available/replicate for details.
