Al gave a response already, and I agree that the "X crossover"
scenario is highly unlikely.

However I will also point out that even if the "X crossover" story
were true the "usual" explanation and the imagined "X crossover"
scenario are not actually different. As far as the Y phylogeny is
concerned, you would still be looking at two different instances of
the SNP. You would just have a different explanation. Biologically
that might be interesting, but phylogenetically not so much.
