I mentioned not possible for Exchange native features. If you go to a third party, it will be more difficult to manage. Thanks.

if you have Exchange 2010 in both organizations, you can use Exchange Availability service to have free busy \ calender information.
You can use Microsoft Exchange Server Inter-Organization Replication tool to configure free busy \ calendar information if you have exchange 2003 in target domain.

The tool and its documentation can be downloaded through below links.
