probably as Peter suggested, simply use a note with a catchWord to 
identify exactly the text.

<seg type="otPassage">new testament quote/allusion to old testament 

and probably a <note type="crossReference"> included to footnote the 
verses as suggested by Peter.  You might also include the global 
annotateRef="osisRef" on the seg to indicate the OT passages, but this 
is mostly meant for commentaries of other works.  I guess you could 
consider the NT a commentary on the OT :)  But we probably wouldn't ever 
expect that attribute to be there.

Hope that gets you started.
