The subject and alternative names of the machines/clients that are allowed to connect to the server will be written into the Stunnel config. While checking the certificates, the subject and alternative names from the Stunnel config will be compared with the subject and alternative names in the certirficate from the connection request. If one of the names from the Stunnel config matches with the names from the certificate then the connection will be allowed.

You should use CRL or OCSP to revoke certificates.
