Clock for multiple ADE7816 devices

I am using three ADE7816s in a design.  What are your recommendations for providing the 16.384MHz clock for these devices.  I could put a separate crystal on each individual device, however this doesn't seem too elegant from an engineering perspective.


I considered a standard xtal oscillator driving all three, however most of these devices have a max capacitive load of 30pF and the ADE7816 datasheet claims the typical input capacitance of the of CLKIN is 20pF, for a total of 60pF for three devices.


If I attach a crystal to the first ADE7816, how many other 7816s can the CLKOUT drive directly?
