Is there any guidance for size, placement, and configuration of underground duct banks carrying multiple conduits of varying sizes, with multiple conductors in each conduit. Current is 120 V control, so heat dissipation should not be an issue. Table B.310.2 has typical configurations for one conductor per conduit, all same size, but nothing for a mixed case.

Just use the same rules for conduit size as you would for any other conduit run. All a duct bank is is a croup of conduits in the earth. WIre ampacity can be found in tables B.310.10 and B.310.11
