There is a very easy answer for this scenerio. Use the aliases file. 
For all the users that are on system B, you will need to add an 
alias to route their mail over to system B. You would just add a line 
like the following for each user on B.

     nothere: nothere@B

Once all the users are there, you need to do a "zmailer newaliases" 
to activate the new aliases map.
