Routing request for single internet website across a vpn conneciton

I need to route requests for a single external website across a vpn connection.  Scenario:
site 1 makes request for www.abc.com/test, i need this to route across the vpn connection to site 2 and go out that internet connection.  site 1 makes a request for www.adc.com/test2, i need this request to go out the internet connection at site 1.  
Site 1 and site 2 are connected via site2site vpn between to sonicwalls. I know this may require some creative internal DNS adjustments as well as routing...
1. how do i get the sonicwall to route requests for www.abc.com from site 1 to site 2 via the vpn conneciton?
www.abc.com is using host header files, so i grabbed ip address and set a route in the sonicwall
source 172.16.1.x (site 1 LAN) destination x.x.x.x (abc.com) gateway (remote gateway site 2) and the traffic does not route?  I must have a zone selection wrong or something, i set the zone to VPN on local sonicwall
