Hi Ernie,

When one occ switch is on and the other is off then the "off" one is getting 120 volts fed into its output.

That is EXACTLY the issue. THE question. THE SUBJECT, if you will.

While thinking does not always reveal the truth, here are the thoughts: When switch A is on:
If switch B is on, there should be no problem as both outputs come from the same input.
If switch B is off, then the input to switch B will be at 120 v, and the output to switch B (coming from switch A) will be at 120 volts.

What could go wrong?
A good answer is easier with a clear question giving the make and model of everything.
