NFS mounting /usr/spool/calendar doesn't work. Rpc.cmsd only reads a
callog.* file once, the first time it is referenced by that server, and
then it keeps the information cached. If someone changes a calendar via a
difference server, your server will never notice the change. And if you
then make a change to that calendar, you'll back out the previous change.
