Connect them both to both machines. Why not? Pull the transmit data pin 
from one machine; the other can poll the clock for both machines. I have 
two PSTI/Traconex clocks here, both doing fine, but they have needed 
frequent MX232 chip transfusions. I run them from the 12-V power/charger 
bus here for the radios and other comms gear, since we get frequent 
power glitches and they will stay synchronized for days on a 75-AH deep 
discharge battery.
