You cannot have two Domain Controllers in the same active directory tree when running SBS2003.  You also cannot establish a domain trust.

IF you are wanting redundancy you would want some sort of high availbility cluster, both machines running windows 2003/2008 and sharing storage (like on a PowerVault 200s)
