Upload a very small image file to

C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\web server extensions\15\TEMPLATE\IMAGES

Add the image to the page footer in one of your two WFEs. When you reload the page, you will either see the image, or not. And by that you know which is which since every WFE looks into its own image directory.
