This snippet has to be placed in the ROUTERS section of the
configuration file that configures the "delivering" instance of exim,
i.e. the instance that MailScanner "passes" the mails to after
scanning for viri and spam.

# Router for eMails to some.special.domain:
  driver = manualroute
  domains = some.special.domain
  transport = remote_smtp
  route_list = "*"

This tells exim that mail to addresses with the domain part
"some.special.domain" shall be delivered via a "manualroute" to the
host "".
This router must be placed first in the ROUTERS section. The above
example is a very minimalistic one, but it works for me...

More information can be found in the docs on <>.
There are examples, too...
