Each SSL certificate *requires* a unique IP address on the server. This is
outside the realm of WordPress configuration. The solution will depend on
your network and server setup.

As a general overview, you'll need multiple public IP addresses (3) pointing
to your server and your web server should be configured to respond to each
IP with the proper domain and SSL cert location.
