Depending on the useage profile of the files in question, consider a replication scheme.

Set up a mirror of the files on both file servers, and set a replication of some kind to keep the two versions in sync. How it is replicated and how often will depend on the business needs, the useage profile of the files, and they server OS you are using.

your solution may be as simple as a file copy and a Cron job.
