Default relay access denyed in postfix using virtual alias maps

I'm trying to set up postfix to relay mail using virtual_alias maps but they are getting bounced. I've already checked to make sure the domains are in my virtual_alias_domains table but everything seems to be set correctly. How can I diagnose this issue?

Below is information that might be of help:

Aug  2 00:07:01 server2 postfix/smtpd[6729]: NOQUEUE: reject: RCPT from <sender address>: 454 4.7.1 <recipient address>: Relay access denied; from=<sender address> to=<recipient address> proto=ESMTP helo=<sender server>
# postconf -n
alias_database = hash:/usr/local/etc/postfix/aliases
alias_maps = hash:/usr/local/etc/postfix/aliases, hash:/usr/local/etc/postfix/aliases-www
command_directory = /usr/local/sbin
config_directory = /usr/local/etc/postfix
daemon_directory = /usr/local/libexec/postfix
data_directory = /var/db/postfix
debug_peer_level = 2
html_directory = /usr/local/share/doc/postfix
mail_owner = postfix
mailbox_command = /usr/local/bin/procmail
mailbox_size_limit = 524288000
mailq_path = /usr/local/bin/mailq
manpage_directory = /usr/local/man

myhostname = mymailserver.domain.com

Are there any other errors in your mail log? What's in /usr/local/etc/postfix/virtusertable?
