Surely it would be the server performing the authentication, not the
server requesting the authentication (in this instance, acting as a
client) (I've got my LDAP authentication talking to another server).
That said, an authentication request is pretty short, so 10 (or
whatever) simultaneous requests would probably handle a large number
of users.
