I don't believe this is possible.

This should work fine though you need to be sure that you are sourcing a
different playlist.  Have you used the -v flag to get ices to tell you
exactly what it is doing?

Another possible cause of the behavior would be that the second stream
is having a problem and stops streaming.  Icecast by default will fail
clients over to the first stream on the server in that case.
