Not really (if i understand the OP correctly): redirection would
change the URL displayed in the browser.
One can "fool" client browsers by just having an "outer" webpage on
server A that is nothing more than a frameset with one frame that
has as its content the webpagefrom server B.
The most canonic way to go would be apache's mod_proxy, since 
proxying is really what'S happening here.
