Checkpoint 15600 appliance and VSX clusters/gateways/domains

I am installing 2 new 15600 appliances and have a question about VSX configuration.

 

The simplest approach is a single security manager with a single domain and 2x virtual systems.

 

The more complex approach is multi-domain manager with a single domain and 2x virtual systems. (Purely to get the online backup of the database, rather than rely solely on offline backups)

 

However, I would like to know if my physical appliances can support multiple domains.  It may be easier to use 2x domains with 1 virtual system in each domain.  But I have no definitive answer if the 15600 appliances can have a leg in each domain, or they are purely designed for a single domain 

 

The environment is very fluid, so I need a fluid design.
