I'm searching how to add static mac address in EX4200,
Like in Cisco: mac address-table static xxxx.xxxx.xxxx vlan X interface GigabitEthernet2/0/20 GigabitEthernet1/0/31
set ethernet-switching-options static vlan XXXXXXX mac xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx next-hop ge-1/0/7
But receiving an error:
multicast mac address xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx is not allowed
error: configuration check-out failed
Is there something else that can be done?

Usually I add static mac for multicast mac under layer-3 interface not layer-2.
I applied it for servers connected virtually and have virtual-IP with virtual-mac which is multicast mac
set interfaces ge-0/0/21 unit 0 family inet address 172.20.6.1/24 arp 172.20.6.27 multicast-mac 03:bf:ac:14:06:1b
JNCIE-M/T # 1059, CCNP & CCIP

Thanks. I know this solution.
My topology very complex and this switch don't have relevant VLAN L3 interface. This is Metro VLAN to different site and switch that connected to EX4200 works with QinQ.

Aha I see. So your topology is pure L2 no L3 interface anywhere.
From the error in your commit multicast mac is not allowed so you can try to add layer-3 interface to solve this problem as workaround. I am not sure it will work but you can try it will be something like that on the branch that have this multicast mac address
set interfaces vlan unit 2 family inet address 172.20.6.1/24 arp 172.20.6.27 multicast-mac 03:bf:ac:14:06:1b
