Oracle DIRECTORY objects are usually used with either utl_file or external tables. I see no reason why the data used to feed a utl_file task could not come from a distributed query and I would think you could reference an external table via a remote query though I have never tried it.  

NFS mouting definitely works. We do that now.

                Is it possible to use DIRECTORY OBJECTS between servers?                  

                Have DIRECTORY OBJECTS from database A on server A point to and create its files on server B?
