If Server1 has an initiated connection with Server2, then both sides should 
know who is who (each knows the domain of the other).

I'm not sure what you mean by "in response to Server1's connection".  If you 
want Server2 to initiate a connection back to Server1 just for the heck of 
it, then you should have all of the information you need to do so.  Normally, 
though, Server2 will only initiate a connection back to Server1 when it has a 
stanza to send.  So if a user on Server1 sends an instant message to a user 
on Server2, and then the user on Server2 replies to the message, then Server2 
will naturally connect back to Server1.
