1. no
2. there might be a lot of places where you can misslead your
configuration, sending how you did it might help
distcc_log migt be also helpfull, set export DISTCC_VERBOSE=1
DISTCC_LOG=path+to+file there is everything you need to debug.
3. yes, just set export  DISTCC_FALLBACK=0 and inside DISTCC_HOSTS set only
second machine.
