Yes, you can enable both at the same time and you'll get two files.

  output_format XML;
  output_format JSON;

Per man-page:

  output_format FORMAT ;
    Specify the output format, can be give multiple times to
    output in more then one format.  Default output format
    is XML, see section DATA FORMATS and FILE NAMING

I will update the man-page to describe this similar to how it describes
multiple configuration options elsewhere (like interface).
