Large scale X

If i have 1000 user accounts on one accounts server and dozens of X apps on
another apps server, how can a user start an X app when they don't have an
account on the apps server? (no user accounts at all on apps server)

I'm thinking of traditional X where the users use dumb X terminals, and
xdm gives the log-in screen.

Do i need to use nfs, or is there some better way?
