I beleive you can add those hostnames to /etc/X0.hosts (for server 0)
to do that.
You may want to run 'strings /usr/bin/Xorg|grep -F .hosts' (as root if
it is setuid) to confirm whether your dist made any changes to that
file's default location.
The other alternative is to make the ~/.Xauthority file available on
those other hosts, perhaps by a common NFS mount.
