In this howto, the second (backup) mailserver gets all mail and forwards it back to the first mailserver, when it becomes available again. This is in most scenarios better then having 2 independant mailservers.

I think the easiest way would be to copy over /etc/postfix/local-host-names to the backup MX (e.g. with rsync) and include it in the relay_domains parameter:
Code:
relay_domains = $mydestination, /etc/postfix/local-host-names
(might be a good idea to rename local-host-names to something different...)
