You can install two or more management servers that communicate with one Microsoft SQL Server and configure them for failover or load balancing. Failover configuration causes one server to pick up the client communications load if another server becomes unavailable. Load balancing configuration causes servers to share the client communications load and automatically implements failover if one of the servers goes offline.

You can do that with 1 SQL Database and this database can be anywhere doesn't have to be on any of the 2 servers.

for replication you need 2 database..for failover/loadbalancing you need 1 database.

SEPM keeps everything in it's database.At the time of fail over configuration you are using same database for both servers.So there is no question of replication is coming.
