I need either a Jim Dandy or Apollo "winter berry" holly (aka a male) to
pollinate my new "Berry Nice" winter berry holly. The only ones I can
find locally are much bigger than I can easily plant with out expanding
a bed that I really don't want to touch for a few years.

Pretty much any male holly within a few hundred yards will probably do.
So have a wander around your area and see if there is any male holly
around rather than taking up space unnecessarily in your garden.
I suspect there are none - I live in a area with large yards that are
(sadly) mostly grass.
I don't mind adding another shrub, I just really didn't want to work
around where I'd locate it now - The next expansion of that area is a
year or so away.
I did end up contacting the America Holly Society. Since most
commercially available hollies are clones, they start blooming and
producing pollen as very young plants. So next year, I'll find a Jim
Dandy for my garden
