Well, I could do that, yes, but, well, it means I'll have twice the
number of hosts than I have, it is not really going to be fun to
manage... :-(

I have created a "hostalive" check for all my satellites and force the
zone to be "master", but it is not connected to the host has being the
"I'm alive" check.
