Database replication when adding an additional Domino server

If I am planning on adding an additional Domino Server within the same Domino domain, what are the minimum required databases that must replicate between the servers to keep everything in sync? For example, I have many customer discussion databases and I want that directory path to replicate to the customer server, but what else would be required at the system level?

At a bare minimum, I would replicate names.nsf and admin4.nsf. If you have lookup issues, you might need to replicate your dircat or secondary NABs, but the two listed are the main DBs needed.
