A single XMPP domain can be scaled across many machines. All the major XMPP
server implementations support this. However, there is no standard protocol
for communication between machines in a single-domain scenario. This means
if you are clustering many machines for a single domain, you cannot mix and
match server types (e.g. you can't have ejabberd on one node and Openfire on
another node), but I don't think anyone really considers this a problem.
