Here's a vbscript from MS that does this for a VM called "Windows 2000 Server".  Perhaps you could just run a batch on startup of the host.

On Error Resume Next

Set objVS = CreateObject("VirtualServer.Application")
Set objVM = objVS.FindVirtualMachine("Windows 2000 Server")

objVM.Startup()

Action when Virtual Server service starts
Setting that determines whether the virtual machine is started automatically when the Virtual Server service starts.

Important  
To enable an option that automatically turns on a virtual machine, you must also configure the setting Run virtual machine under the following user account and specify an account with appropriate permissions. If you do not specify a user account, this setting reverts to Never automatically turn on virtual machine.
