Right, I think I know what you mean.

You have two choices:

(1) Use a simple script to clone all the save sets from Set1 and send these
off site.

(2) Run your Set2 backup to a pool which has "Store Index entries" set
to "No". This way, the subsequent incrementals will increment against Set1
since they won't know about Set2. The downside of this is that if you need
to recover from Set2, you will need to run scanner first, or do save set
recoveries only.
