Indeed there is, and it's beautifully simple. Just signon to as many servers as you like and use the REMOTE= option to control which one SAS will currently RSUBMIT to:

options remote=server1; signon; options remote=server2; signon; options remote=server3; signon; rsubmit; /* to current remote= server, i.e. server3 */ endrsubmit; options remote=server1; rsubmit; /* to server1 */ endrsubmit; options remote=server2; rsubmit; /* to server2 */ endrsubmit; options remote=server3; rsubmit; /* to server3 */ endrsubmit; signoff; /* current remote= server, i.e. server3 */ options remote=server1; signoff; /* server1 */ options remote=server2; signoff; /* server2 */

Hope that's clear.

Remember also that instead of using a site-defined alias for the server name, you can set your own to a specific IP address, e.g.

%let MYSRVR = 123.45.678.89 ; options remote = MYSRVR ; signon ; /* etc */

This may make the switching and control easier to follow within your code.
