They subscribe to the same multicast group, your multicast routers would
forward the packets, and as long as the TTLs are high enough, they would
reach the other side.

Since you said you have two "clusters", maybe you should just set up
unicast TCP connectors and use those.  Unless you have a bunch of
machines in each group, or they're very dynamic and changing, maybe
discovery isn't even the ideal setup.
