I believe this only happens when the e-mail originates from internally via Outlook/OWA - i.e., via MAPI.  If Exchange receives the message via MAPI, it is not yet an Internet-formatted e-mail and is instead stored according to MS' own internal formats.  Only at POP3 collection does the Internet message headers become formed and by this time the recipient's primary e-mail address is given to the To: field, not the alias.

This is known issue with Exchange 2007.  Please see the below MS article for the same.
