The document is indexed by all replicas.  There is no way to forward the
indexed document, it can only forward the source document ... so each
replica must index it independently.

The old-style master-slave replication (which existed long before
SolrCloud) copies the finished Lucene segments, so only the master
actually does indexing.

SolrCloud doesn't have a master, only multiple replicas, one of which is
elected leader, and replication only comes into the picture if there's a
serious problem and Solr determines that it can't use the transaction
log to recover the index.
