Postfix not forwarding mail to primary domain

I recently put a second email server online and made that the main email 
server. I made the other one a backup server. Both are running FreeBSD 
6.2 and Postfix. My main server went down and the backup server 
collected all the mail. When the main came online the backup has not 
forwarded the mail from the backup server to the main server. I have 
even tried the flush command. What could be wrong. I will include my 
postconf file.

canonical_maps = hash:/usr/local/etc/postfix/canonical_maps
command_directory = /usr/local/sbin
config_directory = /usr/local/etc/postfix
content_filter = smtp-amavis:[]:10024
daemon_directory = /usr/local/libexec/postfix
debug_peer_level = 2
header_checks = regexp:/usr/local/etc/postfix/header_checks
html_directory = no
mail_owner = postfix
mailq_path = /usr/local/bin/mailq
manpage_directory = /usr/local/man
mydestination = $myhostname, localhost.$mydomain, localhost, $mydomain,
mydomain =
myhostname =
mynetworks =,
mynetworks_style = host
newaliases_path = /usr/local/bin/newaliases
queue_directory = /var/spool/postfix
readme_directory = no
relay_domains = hash:/usr/local/etc/postfix/relay_domains
relay_recipient_maps = hash:/usr/local/etc/postfix/relay_recipients
sample_directory = /usr/local/etc/postfix
sendmail_path = /usr/local/sbin/sendmail
setgid_group = maildrop
smtpd_client_restrictions = check_client_access 
cidr:/usr/local/etc/postfix/sinokorea.cidr   permit
smtpd_recipient_restrictions = reject_unauth_pipelining,  
reject_non_fqdn_recipient,  reject_unknown_recipient_domain,  
permit_mynetworks,  permit_sasl_authenticated,  
reject_unauth_destination,  reject_rbl_client,  
reject_rbl_client  check_policy_service 
unknown_local_recipient_reject_code = 550
virtual_alias_domains =,
virtual_alias_maps = hash:/usr/local/etc/postfix/virtual_alias

The relay domain reads         ok         ok   ok

Thanks for the help
