Active Directory authentication

I'm using Meraki cloud authentication now, but I'll be switching to AD authentication later.  I have 2 active directory servers.  Is it a good practice to use both servers as NPS (Network Policy Server) or just one?  I'm assuming both will be good, but just want some advice.

What is the authentaction for?  WPA2-Enterprise mode?  Group policy assignment?  Client VPN?

 

Yes, I would also use two authentication servers where possible.

Sorry about the misleading title.  I meant to type "Active Directory authentication".  I'm not sure how to fix it now.

It will be for client VPN.

I guess its not possible to add more than 1 AD server for Client VPN.  I opened a case with Meraki.  I don't see an option to add second one.
