I have a new SBS 2008 box I am setting up to replace an SBS 2003 domain.

Problem Summary:

email for one domain (the default) is set up and receiving correctly.
email for their second domain is not.  

Additional Detail:
the two domains are xxx-lab.com and xxxlab.com (note xxx are to obfuscate the company name.. i don't run a lab for ... )

The primary xxx-lab.com is being recieved.  The secondary is getting rejected with the following message "Google tried to deliver your message, but it was rejected by the recipient domain. We recommend contacting the other email provider for further information about the cause of this error. The error that the other server returned was: 550 550 5.7.1 Unable to relay (state 14)."

Yes both domains are added under Hub Transport -> Accepted Domains

Also I double checked and MX Records are identical for the two servers...

They are both listed as primary under Accepted Domians.  The only difference is xxx-lab.com is set as the default (this is the domain that can receive email

I need to correct my previous post.  I get a message delivery failure on that second account.  (It takes longer to get the error message)

Nevermind.  I found out the problem.  Right under my nose.  It was a typo in the recipient policy.  
Thank you for attempting to help me Akhater
