You are fine getting to the remote servers via the vitual by giving the LD a route to them with "ip route". The problem is getting the replies from the servers back to the clients. The path for this reply MUST go through the LD. This is generally harder to do if the servers are not on the same segment as LD.
Whether this works depends on the topology. For instance, the server is on one side of the LD and the server's gateway to the client is on the other side of the LD, and the LD is the only way to get between the segments. In any case, you need to verify the return path from the server goes through the LD before it reaches the clients.
If the LD has a route to the servers, traffic will get to the servers. The problem is generally in the response. So, if the response from the server to the client can only get to the client by going through the LD (for instance, crossing the LD is the only way to the firewall segment, then this should work.
If, for some reason you don't want to add a router (or can not put another address on the upstream router or firewall), and still put the servers on a separate subnet, it is possible, although it would require static arp entries on the servers.
