You need to "force" your application stuff (and, yes, in this context
lvm is an application) do deal with that, and cLVM would be the means
to do that, i.e. coordinate. Possibly you even need to start earlier,
and fix your iSCSI target configuration.

There is nothing to force DRBD to do in this context.
It just replicates whatever you write to it, no more, no less.

If you have caches on "the way" to "the other client"
that happen to happily cache stale content (are "incoherent"),
there is nothing DRBD can do about it.
