You are talking about 'sharding' the authenitication backend.

DBMail itself does not support this. You need to:
- setup a dbmail installation that talks exclusively to the second ldap
- setup a imap/pop3 proxy that know which dbmail backend to talk to,
based on the login
- update your MTA transport tables so your MTA also knows which server
to deliver email to
The dovecot proxy might fit the bill:
