I replicate all users from all masters to replicas about once a month and 
check the output for any inconsistancies. Something like:

   cyrus-23[cyrus:cyrus]$ replicate -s cyrus-24 -v -v -u dpc22
   USER dpc22
     USER_ALL dpc22

where "replicate" is just a little wrapper around sync_client.

We also maintain databases of MD5 checksums for messages and cache 
entries, generated by make_md5.
