If it's only to the mail flow you're after this can be done pretty quick.

On Domain1 Exchange server: create a SMTP connector and add domain2 as address space.
Specify the connector to use a smart host for mail delivery and add the exchange server in domain2 as the smart host.

On Domain2 Exchange server: create a SMTP connector and add domain1 as address space.
Specify the connector to use a smart host for mail delivery and add the exchange server in domain1 as the smart host.

Thanks michaellundgren.
Can I add Exchange server in different domain to the same routing group?
If can, this solution can solve my problem or not?

No, you can't add Exchange servers from different Exchange organizations to the same routing group.
Why do you need do have the servers in the same routing group?
