It depends.

If the two servers should be seen as one server (located at the same
place), then the easies way is to use DNS round-robin to evenly
distribute the clients on both servers.

If the two servers are really in a child->parent relation, then the
closest you can get is to configure the parent as a sibling instead of a
parent. This way if SERVER A gets the object from SERVER B if SERVER B
has it cached, else SERVER A fetches it directly from the source.
