MailScanner does not do any local delivery.

MailScanner reads from the incoming SMTP queue, scans based on its own 
rules, then places the scanned message into its 'outgoing' queue.  The 
program that process that queue (usually your MTA) is the program that 
decides whether to deliver locally or relay on.
