If your machines are in different forests and you define forests as Microsoft do - ie. having separate schemas, then you must use SMTP connectors for seperate mail organisations. Exchange2000 is bound by the Active directory schema so can only exist in one schema, and there can only be one exchange organisation in a single forest.
Is this a test environment you have setup? I hope so.

An smtp connector will only handle mail to the specified domain name.  Is there any way of replicating the active directory users as contacts to the other exchange server

Windows itself will not do this easily. There may be third party tools to do this - I know of none - anyone.......
Otherwise it is a case of using Metadirectory services- now there is a HUGE task for you!

DrDickie is correct here. If one of these installs of Exchange are new, then rebuild it to join the other domain/forest. This is the only supportable method i know of. If you have another domain you need to receive email for, or perform other tasks for, you should be able to deal with that later. However, to get there, you will need to have all Exchange 2000 servers reside in the same Active Directory Forest.
