I would advise against this. When you do this your mailscanner server
will have to bounce all messages your other mailserver doesn't accept
(like user unknown). We have a similar setup, but we feed the
mailscanner server with all the known addresses (in the virtusertable).

user at domain.tld: user at mailhost.domain.tld
