Yes, you do need to install  on each front  end Web server.

Does it not depend on how you installed the web part? If you load  it
into the /bin area and you make a change to the web.config file, then
yes! you need to do this to all front-end servers in order to keep them
balanced. If you use the assemblies install  method, then no, you would
only need to load it once and it is automatically represented on all
front-end servers.

I will not say you are wrong although we have not been successful
installing a new Web part except to install  it on both front  end
servers. I will look into the assemblies install method but even
then, you are hitting either one or the other web server  with does
not automatically propogate to the other(s).

Look at the Assembly area under the Windows directory
(C:\WINDOWS\assembly). Whenever I made a change in the Assembly area,
it was automatically propagated to the other server(s).

Use STSADM to deploy your Web Part on each Web Front End.
