Yes. ZK ensemble is the gateway to the cluster whether connecting locally
or remotely as replication does.

Do you mean master 'cluster' in the above? If so, yes, the master cluster
sends data to the slave cluster (master RS to slave RSs). The
communication is one way; master to slave cluster.
If you are asking if hbase masters need to communicate, the answer is no.
P.S. Doug, we need to add above to doc
