Your 3 Horde servers can share the same SSL certificate if they all are 
sharing the same domain name.  For example, you could have all 3 servers 
behind a load balancer or use DNS round-robin (such as 
http://horde.example.com).  We do that here.

However, if your Horde servers use different domain names (such as 
horde1.example.com, horde2.example.com, and horde3.example.com) then you 
must use 3 SSL certificates.  Otherwise, your users will get a certificate 
name mismatch error when they visit your site.
