Just redirect the apropriate servers away from /etc/shadow and
have them use their own user database. Although you will notice
that this will increase the burdon of administration and will be
difficult for the users to realize that they have to update
several passwords regularly using absolutely(?) different
mechanisms. It's your decision.
