I'd probably have a database to hold the information about user accounts
and related stuff. Both servers' software can concurrently access the
database, of course. The normal server simply asks the database whether
the appropriate account is currently valid for whatever service they're
asking for. To save the DB from having to answer the same question again
on every image load, cache its responses for a few minutes.

Good luck with it!
