Servlets aren't clustered.
Servlet containers are.

Often large sites will run multiple web servers and servlet containers to better handle high traffic and to make it easier to perform maintenance on them without interrupting service.

If you perform a Google search with keywords 'clustering' or 'load balancing' you should find plenty of information on the subject.
These two came up on top for me:
