Configuring two web adaptors to use the same token

I am in the process of setting up an environment where there will be two web adaptors behind a load balancer to serve a high-availability site. The configuration looks something like this:


Essentially, two physically separate ArcGIS Server sites are mirrored and attached with a NLB on the front end. Each site serves the same secured services and are configured to use the same shared key for token generation. In this scenario, ideally when the client logs in (authenticating against the built-in store) a token will be generated which will be recognized by both server sites.

Is this possible? If so, what needs to be done for this to happen? I know we can adjust the affinity settings on the NLB to prevent requests from the same client from being distributed across the two sites, but the goal is complete failover.
