Using DO, we'd like to have multiple servers sharing the same register

or do you have any other methods to broadcast and list servers on the
local network serving the same "service" ?

Well, you cannot have more objects with same name, at least, not by using 
default gnustep DO name server. You can create your own name server, if you 
like. However, what can you do, is to register all objects with NameXXX where 
XXX is a number. If you want to get a list of them, just post a distributed 
notification. See NSDistributedNotificationCenter. Make servers be observers of 
some notification that will be posted by an object which wants to know all 
servers. Then each server can post notification with their identification.
