Technically. It's not a job for MailScanner. It is the job of the
unlisted MTA that you are using.
There are several options:
~ 1. Point to a hostname that will resolve it's A records at random to
one of the servers.
~ 2. Use split DNS and let the internal server do the MX thing again
instead of using the transport file.
