That don't work.  Or rather, it does work, but it doesn't work any
better than having ALL 50 clients doing their own thing.  Or.... I've
got my proxy screwed up. ;-)

I currently update clamav on all 50 clients via a centralized proxy,
however the proxy doesn't cache daily.cvd, rather it proxies it 50 times
from db.local.clamav.net.   What could I possibly be doing wrong?
