You have a very special case here.
There is currently no automated way to do so.

If you specify
MailFieldNames = ( mail, gosaMailAlternateAddress );
in your SOGoUserSources, then you could use both email addresses, but
they have to end up in one mailbox.

So you only could add an "auxiliar" mailbox to each user.
In order to do so, you need to enable this with
SOGoMailAuxiliaryUserAccountsEnabled = YES;
in your sogo.conf.
Then you have to set the corresponding values for this second mailbox
for each user.
Normally this is done via webinterface under "Preferences" -->
But you could write a script for this based on sogo-tool backup and restore.

Hope this helps a bit.

Kind regards,
