I need to enable to services (Outlook.com and Zendesk.com) to send email on our behalf.  The individual SPF records for each would be the following:

v=spf1 include:spf.protection.outlook.com -all
v=spf1 include:mail.zendesk.com ?all

My understanding is that there can only be one SPF record. So what would be the correct record that combines both of these servers?

Your spf record would look something like:
v=spf1 mx a include:spf.protection.outlook.com include:mail.zendesk.com ?all

You just name them both in the spf -

v=spf1 include:spf.protection.outlook.com include:mail.zendesk.com ~all.

The only thing you can't include twice is the qualifier for your fail.  I suggest ~all (soft fail) as you can watch the tagging and make sure you can correct servers that have issues with your spf.
