Server with two dsl-lines

Sure, I think this is possible, just to clarify, you are looking to
make the Host (a) acessible by either outside IP (you can even do it
at the same time using a shared vnc connection, mouse fight ;)
A simple solution: install a second NIC in the computer, set it up so
they are on different networks (e.g. 192.168.0.5 and 192.168.1.5) Set
up the default gateways (which can be set up individually for each NIC
192.168.0.1 and 192.168.1.1) forward ports on each router. for
dynamic dns use the router as the dynamic dns client (if you can)
otherwise this may be a bit tougher.
Note: the host (a) will still send all its non-vnc traffic out of one
interface You can configure which one by going to network and dial up
connections then on the menu choose Advanced->Advanced Settings, once
there change the provider order in the top box (whoever's on top wins)
If you really want it to do both what you need is load balancing and
this is both complicated and not usually worth the effort as getting
protocols through load balancers is either a Big pain or costs a
decent amount of money.
