Ok, what a potpurri this will be...

At machine2 you can define a route entry with default to machine1:
	.	smtpx!machine1
That way all email traffic out from machine2 will be routed to machine1
for external routing.

As for INBOUND traffic, there you need to have MX entries:

	foo.com.  IN MX 1 bla.org ; to receive at machine1 from abroad

AND likely an explicite route at machine1 to direct foo.com mail to
	foo.com  smtpx!machine2

For the smtp-policy information, I suggest you look into:
That file can be found linked from the "deeply technical" page..
