that is nothing you can achieve via smokeping directly. If server1 does 
not have two IP addresses ist even seems to be impossible. Lets assume 
server has IP addresses IP1 and IP2. Than you would have to make entries 
for IP1 and IP2 i.e.

menu = server1 via ISP1
title = Server1 (IP1)
host = i.p.1.1

menu = server1 via ISP2
title = Server1 (IP2)
host = i.p.2.1

Furthermore you have to make sure that i.p.1.1 is routed towards ISP1 
and i.p.2.1 is routed towards ISP2.

Now you see why it is really ugly if server1 only has one IP. Then you 
would have to do something like

  route server1 via ISP1
  run smokeping section "server1 via ISP1"

  route server1 via ISP2
  run smokeping section "server1 via ISP2"
