An asp.net application is a virtual directory that you make on a web server. This application will take the settings of machine.config file if a web.config file is not available in that directory. Now if you create a sub directory inside a virtual directory and place another web.config file in the sub directory then the sub directory will take the settings of the web.config file in that particular directory.
So my answer is that an application can have more than one web.config file but they should be in different directories of that web application and also the sub directory that uses it should be a virtual directory
