You cannot backup two servers with one job with BE 2012. You need to upgrade to BE 2014 if you want to backup multiple servers in one job

I also found out, that with the SBS edition I should be able to do that. However I could not find a way to achieve this :)

You can contact Symantec's licensing department for new keys.
