I have a policy route in my extreme networks switch to redirect all traffic to another location.  Example is:
entry test {
if {
   source-address 10.0.0.x/32;
   } then {
   redirect 10.100.1.1;
}

The entry works fine but the remote redirect is actually on an OSPF link in another location.  So i want to know if there is a way to only have traffic go over the direct if its destination is external to the network?  so somehow only apply the rule if the destination IP is NOT 10.x.x.x

I know i can add in destination-address x.x.x.x but i dont know how to negate it so its applied to everything BUT the destination IP.

The reason for this is that if the network link is down the server cannot route traffic internally to other locations since its bypassing the routing table.  

I would almost like to see it check the routing table FIRST and then if its to be sent externally THEN apply the ACL but the way the switch works is that the ACL gets processed first and if it fails it will forward the packet as per the routing table.
