This is correct, especially since the I/O bottleneck on the DB will still
exist no matter how many application servers you have running, and it could
possibly get worse since you are eliminating shared memory usage by
separating out servers.
You're system configuration, both hardware and settings could play a huge
part in any issues you are having, and I suspect one of those is really the
culprit. How many users are you running I have never really seen an
installation with fewer than 250 or so office users actually require a
clustering of application servers.

Before you go trough all that trouble watch your load during peak use, I am
willing to bet that CPU and RAM sit there looking bored. 90% of the issues
with Vantage do not arise from High CPU usage or even Ram ove-rutilizatoin
the problem is generally the IO bottle neck. I bet its your hard-drives that
can't keep up. If that's the case you can do a whole lot more by fixing your
raid config / adding more spindles than by clustering things.
