Two STONITH devices for one host, _both_ of which you expect to
trigger, is nothing I remember as ever having been supported, up to
this point. What you can do is to run staggered fencing, that is, a
higher-priority fencing device fires first, and then _if that fails_,
another lower-priority one does.

However, in Pacemaker 1.1 this fallback to secondary STONITH devices
(with staggered priorities) simply hasn't yet been implemented in
stonith-ng. It's currently on the list for Fedora 17, and if I
understood Andrew correctly that release should also cover your "both
A and B must succeed for fencing to be considered successful"

So perhaps you can be patient until then and settle for IPMI in the meantime?
