Our goal for SmarterMail is to use it to relay / forward all SMTP email from an app server to a single email address. What is the best strategy / configuration for this purpose?

Is the goal to over-ride the destination address that the app server puts on the e-mail and send the e-mail to a different address?   An SMTP 'relay' server won't do that; it accepts mail, then tries to deliver it to the addressee.  However, some SMTP server can be configured to send an additional copy of the message to a pre-configured e-mail address.  This is often done for archiving purposes.  If you DO want the SmarterMail host to relay the messages, simply adding the IP address of the app server to SmarterMail's "relay mail for..." configuration should be enough.

I called SmarterMail to propose my intention; they confirmed that SmarterMail server will not function in the manner desired. So I used MailSite instead.

I used SmarterMail support to arrive at my conclusion.
