The Migration Wizard does not work between Exchange organizations.  You have to 
use the Exmerge to accomplish that.  You should not have used the ADC to 
connect to old organization to the new should have used the Move 
Server Wizard to attach the old server to the new organization/server.

I'd imagine that you'll have to remove the ADC, remove the mailbox association 
from existing users, and then use Exmerge to dump the mailboxes out of the old 
server and import then them into the new server.

I'd strongly recommend calling Microsoft.  I think $200 would be a bargain 
given the complexity of this situation.
