that will send out mail from the domain but it wont be receiving mail, it
will only be used as an SMTP (outbound only) server attached to a website
automailer which is on a seperate webserver... It only generates error
reports and sends them out... so technically it isn't a full mail server
but it will be sending (outbound only) mail on behalf of the domain.

others say -all will cause some MTA's to reject and ~all is better to use
even if those are the only two hosts sending out mail.
