```Dear Hugo,
please find below a solution. It might be too complicated and shorter
solutions might exist, but it works.

library(raster)
r1 <- r2 <- raster()
r1[]<-runif(ncell(r1), 1, 100)
r2[]<-1
r2[1:30000]<-2
r2[30001:35000]<-NA
plot(stack(r1,r2))

## Function
prob<-data.frame(value=1:100, r1=log(1:100), r2=max(log(1:100))-log(1:100))
f <- function(x,y,seed,...){
ifelse(is.na(y),NA,rbinom(n=1, size=1, prob=prob[[y]][x]))
}
f <- Vectorize(f)

## Wrapper function
wrapper <- function(raster,seed,...){
set.seed(seed)
overlay(raster,fun=f)
}

## Overlay (reproducible)
result1<-wrapper(stack(r1,r2),seed=0)
result2<-wrapper(stack(r1,r2),seed=0)
compareRaster(result1,result2,values=TRUE)

## Cluster overlay (Not reproducible)
beginCluster(2)
result3<-clusterR(stack(r1,r2),wrapper,args=list(seed=0),
export=c("prob", "f"))
endCluster()

beginCluster(2)
result4<-clusterR(stack(r1,r2),wrapper,args=list(seed=0),
export=c("prob", "f"))
endCluster()

compareRaster(result3,result4,values=TRUE)

HTH,
Ákos Bede-Fazekas
