Make local KDM connect to remote KDM automatically?

I set up a simple terminal/server arrangement using a PII-233 with a native 
install of Debian as the terminal.  I used to do this kind of thing with 
LTSP, but I'm getting away from that.

I currently have a script out of /etc/init.d that runs X -query [server].  
This works fine as far as my users ever notice, but if there's ever any 
reason to kill X, it doesn't respawn, and I have to intervene manually.

Seems to me like there's some bit of magic I can work to get the terminal's 
KDM or XDM to query the server automatically.  That way I can be running ?DM 
on the terminal in the usual respawning fashion, and still have it manifest 
itself as a login screen for the server.
