Dual Journaling in Exchange 2007

SAIonline asked
We have had a request to journal certain individuals in the company to a second mailbox for compliance reasons.  Currently everything is journaled via a mailbox database journal setup.  For these individuals i would like to setup a journal policy.  If I do that will those individuals be journaled to both locations or does one take precedence over another.  Ideally we would like messages to go to both locations.

Both rules will work fine. The mailbox database journaling is the "old way" of doing it and journal rules are the new Exchange Server 2007 -way of doing journaling. If want to read more about the differences between these two ways of journaling, there's a good blog at: http://www.msexchange.org/tutorials/Exchange-Server-2007-Using-Journaling-Rules.html. It was written when Exchange Server 2007 was at Beta 2, but it is still valid.
