load balancing is achived today by a distributed monitoring.

Nothing prevents you from having redundant monitors on different hosts.
You could have one nagios installation monitor the presence of another and
upon detection of failure of the primary host, send itself a sighup with
additional config files added...

There are no currently defined methods for synchronizing configs across a
number of nagios hosts.
