Just so we are clear.

You removed the crypto map auth command and added the two servers and binded them to the VPN group?

no crypto map outside_map client authentication VPN-DESA-PIX

aaa-server VPN-PROD-PIX protocol radius
aaa-server VPN-PROD-PIX max-failed-attempts 3
aaa-server VPN-PROD-PIX deadtime 10
aaa-server VPN-PROD-PIX (inside) host 10.1.1.100 timeout 10
aaa-server VPN-DESA-PIX protocol radius
aaa-server VPN-DESA-PIX max-failed-attempts 3
aaa-server VPN-DESA-PIX deadtime 10
aaa-server VPN-DESA-PIX (inside) host 10.2.2.100 timeout 10

vpngroup vpn1 authentication-server VPN-PROD-PIX
vpngroup vpn2 authentication-server VPN-DESA-PIX

Okay, so the "vpngroup vpn1 authentication-server <group>" command is not for xauth authentication so it won't work.

This is a limitation of the 6.3 code on the PIX.  You can only have one auth group for your VPN.

"crypto map outside_map client authentication VPN-DESA-PIX".

Is it a PIX 501 or 506? or a 515/525/535?  If a 501, you might want to look into replacing it with an ASA 5505 so you can run the latest and greatest software which provides the auth group per VPN group functionality.  If you have a 515/525/535, you can upgrade to 7.x/8.x to enable this functionality.
