What you want to do is what we call a Virtual Directory. ApacheDS does 
not provide such a facility natively, and it's not that simple to code 

The only think you can do is to create referrals in ApacheDS, but this 
will just redirect you to the two AD servers when a user will send 
requests to ApacheDS.
