Consider what happens if you do nothing at your Exchange server.  The DNS
MX record merrily sends the emails to your Exchange server.  The
Exchange server correctly says: "huh!? I don't know nuttin' 'bout no, reject!".

So yes, you need to do something at the Exchange server.  You need to
configure Recipient Policies and add the appropriate SMTP email
address to each user that needs to receive it.

Even if your DNS server resides on the same server as the Exchange Server
and is an "integrated Microsoft DNS Server", there is no "automatically
transferred knowledge"  about the from the DNS server to Exchange
Server, you have to configure both.

Other clean and low cost solutions also exist but they require that you
have access to a Linux mail server or a hosting company that provides one
- contact me off-line if you need.
