I don't know of a direct way to do this. Why not backup the servers again on the other tapes, and label those tapes by the date you did the backup. This way you even have a more recent state of the system backup up.

I suppose you could find a system with a tape drive and plenty of disk, dump the contents off then record them again. Or alternatively for the future you could devise something with twin tape drives to write two copies at the same time. However for now I don't think there's any other way than doing two backups, one after the other as S0lo suggests
