Doing all RBLs in SA is a good idea for more reasons (than the obvious
one Markus points to:)... It'll lookup several BLs in parallell (MS is
serial), you can finetune scoring etc.

Unfortunately, MS does not allow a ruleset (see
on this particular setting, so your only other option would be to make
sure that both setups looked the same... That is, insert a new MX
before the MailScnner-enhanced one (for the new domain) that only do a
simple forward to the latter... And set Read Address... = 2. Icky,
since this will obfuscate your mailflow a bit:)... Stick with SA and a
correct trust path setting.
