rcirc-startup-channels-alist is obsolete in Emacs 23 and has been
replaced by rcirc-server-alist.  If you use Emacs 23, use this
new variable and configure it through customize.

If you don't use Emacs 23 or a more recent version,
rcirc-startup-channels-alist can be used to tell rcirc what
channels to join when the server matches one of your
regexps. However, the setting does _not_ say what servers to
connect to.

As far as I can tell, there is no way to tell rcirc to connect to
multiple servers automatically on older Emacs versions. Try:

(defun my-irc ()
  (interactive)
  (rcirc-connect "irc.dal.net"
                 6667
                 "my_nick"
                 "username"
                 "fullname"
                 '("#chan1"))
  (rcirc-connect "irc.freenode.net" ...))
