That doesn't work.
What you could do (but I do not recommend it) is to subnet on several NICs.
You can then have on one, on another, ...
This would work as the subnets are more specific but it can create the big mess if you use the same
address on both NICs (as they overlap for each subnet).

What exactly do you plan to do ?
