Simultaneous database access

My director had us go back to using our Macs to try to build a failover 
cluster.   We were able to set up two mail servers sharing the same 
backend XSAN.   We put our database for cyrus on the XSAN and had both 
mail servers use _the same_ database and the same mail store locations.

So far in limited testing it works flawlessly.  This is very strange to 
us.  Is cyrus set up to allow multiple simultaneous accesses to its 
database without corruption or are we just lucky to not have corrupted 
the database yet?

This is cyrus 2.2.12 running on two OSX 10.4.7 servers.
