I can't answer the question but it would be even more interesting to
answer this if you're using a One-Time-Pad (i.e. two files of equal size
on two different servers, both XORed give you the data). There exists a
mathematical proof that none of the two files leak a single bit of
information of the original data :)

Sorry, when I say eligible, I mean "which server would they be allowed

I'm not too hot on the laws of encryption, but I'm sure there is
something which states that hosting encrypted files are not illegal,
it's distributing the key which allows you to gain access to those
fails, which is actually illegal.

*DISCLAIMER: I don't know if the above is true or not, so apologies if
I got this wrong*

    I go with the server hosting the files since the key should be
    significant smaller than the files and therefor much easier to mirror.
