sending mail between two sbs2003 exchange servers

I need to forward email from an active, on the internet sbs2003 / exchange system to another sbs2003 / exchange system that is not exposed to the public / internet.  I want to receive email in the normal way on the first system and forward it to a system that is on the same subnet but is referenced by XX.local.  Where do I create the mx record?  I have created a contact name in AD on the first/active system and assigned it the email address Name@xx.local.  I've gone into the first system and under the username's properties changed the delivery option to store and forward all email to the Name@xx.local address.  Can you tell me waht else I've missed to make this work

If you need to receive Internet emails. through your Internet faced exchange server then you need to configure MX record and point to your inbounds IP.

I think you mis understood my question.  i want to forward emails using the user's store and forward fesature to another sbs2003 system that needs to accept smtp mail as username@xx.local where xx.local is defined by the ip address of the destination system.  I need to know how and where to setup the mx record to point to this ip address and how to form the address in the forwarder space on the source system

I am not sure Whther you are confusing me or I am confusing you... :)
If understand correct (This is only internal). You need to forward mails coming to the user mailbox to the xx.local mailbox which is not exposed to Internet.

For this..

I think you don't have to create MX record for this..
Create a SMTP connector with address space xx.local (Only xx.local, remove "*" address space from this connector) and the make it forward the messages using smart host option. Add the XX@local server inbound IP as smart host to this connector.

This should forward the emails send to xx.local
