I have searched but cannot find any definitive advice on how to go about configuring WP across two servers like this. The obvious problem is sessions and maintaining sessions between two separate servers. Is this an issue with WP and if so how can I resolve it? Is there a plugin or some other solution?

WordPress don't using sessions so you don't need to maintain them between servers.

Running with a single database server and two web servers should be simple to setup - just using the same wp-config.php file on both.
