You can override MX prioritization by using a mailertable.

But you will need to list IP addresses in square brackets to disable  
MX lookups and force other MX hosts to relay mail to where-ever you  
want.  Therefore, the simple answer is to make sure that the final  
destination for email to your domain is listed as the highest- 
priority MX record (ie, lowest numeric MX value).

And you will either need to masquarade for your domain, or you will  
need to list all of the hostnames for which email is being addressed  
to in class w (aka /etc/mail/local-host-names) on the mailserver  
which performs local delivery....
