Can't you just have two cron jobs, one on the master machine which dists
the file out to the various machines in /var/tmp or something and another
one on the slave machine which picks it up and replaces/integrates it?
The permissions on the file should keep other people from modifying it.
The only possible problem (depending on setup) could be if someone put a
passwd file there first and the dist didn't properly handle that.
However, if the cron on the slave machine checks the permissions first,
that problem can be avoided.
