I think 2 minuts is enough.
when you search 4 differents servers, if each request needs 2 minuts,
and is synchronous, you need 8 minuts to get an answer.
With the daemon, it's asynchronous, so you can have answers in 2 minuts.
that's the main reason of the daemon.
with another one imho :
if you setup your webserver timeout low (something like 10 seconds) the
daemon becomes mandatory.
