The easiest way to handle it is to set "relay_domains_include_local_mx = yes".  
That way you just have to create a low priority mx record pointing to your 
vmail machine and everything else happens automagically.  You do open 
yourself up to a potential spam attack in that a spammer could, 
theoretically, set up a dns server containing an mx record pointing to you 
and then use you as an open relay.  Not too big a problem, though as most 
spammers aren't going to go to that extreme when there are so many open 
relays available in china....
