security /etc/passwd + /etc/shadow

security /etc/passwd + /etc/shadow

I was wondering whether a scenario, with regard to copying /etc/shadow
and /etc/passwd from one mail server to another would pose any security
issues. I will simply write a cron using scp, that will change the
value of the second mail server daily, without manually having to
update it. We are migrating users atm, and I was thinking this to be an
option, as opposed to having to manually update the second box.

Thanks for any replies -

Kind regards,
