License Master: can it serve up licenses but use a remote URL for its own license?

Motivator

I'm building a high availability Splunk environment for a customer. They view License Manager as a single point of failure, so I'm trying to duplicate its functionality across their indexers.

This question is key though: can an instance both serve up licenses, but use a different URL to get its own license? The URL may or may not point back to itself.

I guess I'm asking if Splunk can act as a license master and license slave at the same time.

No, this is not possible. Putting a master_uri in the [license] section of server.conf only partially starts the license server; it does not appear to answer queries.
