You can do a shared smtp address space. The MX record will point to 1 server and all incoming email will be delivered there then it will forward any email it doesn't have a mailbox for to the other server. Not really a setup a would recommend but it will work. Just realize they are totally seperate email systems so won't be able to share calendars acroos them or have a shared GAL.
