I've never seen or heard of /etc itself being an NFS volume...I suppose 
it would be possible with some gnarly init, but surely not practical.  I 
have, however, heard of subdirs of /etc being shared 
volumes...specifically for load balancing on Postfix.

That came up quite a few months ago on postfix-users (I read casually as 
they've saved me a few times).  IIRC, the regular contributors didn't 
seem too happy about it, suggesting that the OP use something like 
rsync.  While the config did work as the OP had intended, I think he 
wound up taking the advice of the regulars.
