Sure, just go into the backend setup program on your master and turn
OFF the setting that allows the master to run commflagging jobs.  Then
all commflagging jobs will run on your slave.  The setting is called
"Allow Commercial Detection jobs" and there are equivalent settings for
the User Jobs as well.  Make sure that you have the "Run Jobs 
only on original recording host" setting turned OFF as well, otherwise
the recordings that recorded on your master would never get flagged.
