In this specific example I'd probably do it as two service units with
daemon2 wanted by multi-user.target and requiring the daemon1 service...

That was daemon2 will want to be started by default and dependencies mean
that will start daemon1 in the process of doing so... But since 2 requires
1 if 1 fails to start for some reason then 2 won't be stated.
