The problem seems to be that the client (even if it on same box) needs 
to know about the dbserver(s). You have two choices:
1. Add them to the /etc/openafs/CellServDB on each client,
2. set up two SRV records on dns:

for each db servers in your cell.

IMHO first method is faster to accomplish with a small number of 
clients, second is more future proof as new client systems get added to 
your cell.
