Presummably one of your ISPs is the default route.  The other one just
has a route for that ISPs IPs?

The problem would be that the replies to any requests sent to the 2nd
ISP will be routed back via the 1st ISP.  They are probably blocked by
your 1st ISP which is sane and I wouldn't want to use an ISP that didn't
do that.

Sorry I can't give you a solution, but you might need to do some form of
clustering and you may need the same IPs through both ISPs.a
