i have 2 flashs with different sync voltages

sb-600 -> 3.5V
vivitar 283 -> 9.5V

ideally i would plug the 238 into the pc sync port on my d200 while the sb600 is in the hot shoe. i know the d200 is fine with this, but will the sync voltage be transferred from the 238 thru the camera to the sb-600? and if so will it fry my sb-600?

ive been looking at picking up a used sb-24 if its an issue, but sync voltage doesnt match either at 4.5V. wtih only a 1V difference between it and the sb-600 i doubt it would be an issue.

anyone know? or done some mixing an matching with a story to tell?
