You can add any number of user directories. So, the short answer is yes.

Long answer: https://confluence.atlassian.com/adminjiraserver071/connecting-to-an-ldap-directory-802592350.html

This doesn't the answer the question about how to connect to two domains and use both AD's in combination as a User Directory.

I can connect to one Domain and leverage it's LDAP, but now I need to connect to a different domain to get it's AD and leverage that. 

You will need to add a separate user directory. JIRA will combine multiple user directories and you can provide permissions to users/groups from both.

If you have same usernames in both directories, the one from the first directory will be used.
