No, wifidog (auth server or gateway) can't do this.

Many features playing with more than one auth server can become a must  
have with bigger network:

-Failover clustering
-Hotspot or network load balancing
-Master/Slave configuration

But a lot of work need to be done to allow data replication and  
integrity between the server. I hope that the gateway V2.0 will  
include this need. The bad news is that many features have higher  
priority at this time.
