Primary domain/file server is Windows 2003 Standard.  I've setup a secondary server, Windows 2008 Standard.  Currently running .bat login script to folders on primary server.  

Can I invoke a login script to map drives to both the primary and secondary servers?

Secondary server is not yet joined to the domain.

Yes, as long as there is a shared folder and the user has permission to the shared folder it should work just fine.

Does the secondary server have to be joined to the domain?

It has to be physically connected to the same network and should be running on the same subnet. For instance, if the main server is 192.168.75.1, and the secondary server is 192.168.75.40 it would allow a connection. Can you see one server from the other?

Best to have the secondary server joined to the domain otherwise you will have credential issues.

All user accounts would have to match on both servers that's a lot of work.

If a member of the domain then all domain accounts are infect.
