Can I put two DHCP server address on a VLAN interface  ? Tks

interface Vlan3

You already posted the correct configuration.

One might use multiple ip helper-address statements to define multiple destinations.

If a client sends a DHCPDISCOVER in VLAN3 the traffic will be forwarded via Unicast to both DHCP servers. Both servers will reply with a  DHCPOFFER to the client and the client will pick whichever came first.
