Default ISPConfig - Mail() does not route to remote MX when to domain on local server

Originally posted this in the wrong forum. I think this may be an ISPConfig bug but wanted to make sure, or see if there's a simple way to resolve this.

Running Postfix/courier

Linux 2.6.32-042stab055.16 #1 SMP Fri Jun 8 19:22:28 MSD

CentOS release 6.3 (Final)

Added an entry in Advanced Mail Routing for the domain to googles SMTP ip address.

When I try to send an email using PHP's mail() function to any other email address, it works fine. When sending to an email address of a site on the local server, it tries to route it to localhost, where it doesn't find any email account because the mail account is on google apps remote mx:

Mar 28 15:01:31 vds1 postfix/smtpd[582]: NOQUEUE: reject: RCPT from localhost[]: 550 5.1.1 <work@xxxxxxxxxxx.com>: Recipient address rejected: User unknown in relay recipient table; from=<webmaster@xxxxxxxxxxx.com> to=<work@xxxxxxxxxxx.com> proto=ESMTP helo=<xxxxxxxxxxx.com>

Mar 28 15:01:31 vds1 sendmail[652]: r2SC1UVX000652: to=work@xxxxxxxxxxx.com, ctladdr=webmaster@xxxxxxxxxxx.com (48/48), delay=00:00:01, xdelay=00:00:00, mailer=relay, pri=30079, relay=[] [], dsn=5.1.1, stat=User unknown

The domain xxxxxxxxxxx.com is added as a site, but not a mail domain. Do I have this configured wrong, or is something else wrong? This is causing a form to not properly deliver emails.
