The replica lives in a different subnet. It's actually being used as a
gateway server elsewhere.

The configs are identical except for  interface: 192.168.xx.254

Are the MAC addresses unique in either case?

Yes. They are two different servers living in two physical locations, in
two different ISPs.

The LAN/WAN interfaces are both functional.
 The PF configuration differs only in the WAN IP and LAN subnet.
If I put the same DNS servers that I have in /var/unbound/forward.conf in my
/et/resolv.conf, DNS resolution works.
