How exactly do you expect that to happen?  apt supports multiple sources
for the same package perfectly well - by default it will simply go with
the highest version avaliable.  If you point at two repositories one of
which is not a Debian mirror you might get into trouble but otherwise
nothing bad will happen (except for a bit of wasted bandwidth
downloading two copies of the Packages files).
