Exchange MX Routing

Hi can somebody confirm the following for me

We have a domain where the MX record points to the Exchange Server, on the MX Record if I add two Addresses to the Preferences in completely different locations, does that mean if the user does not exixt on the First preference then it will try the next?

No, MX is used to identify the accepting domain SMTP server.  It is how you configure SMTP to do the routing.  If you have Exchange server, the routing to the other Exchange server is done by Exchange internal routing.  What the preferences is used for is to ensure mail continuity in an event where the primary mail server is unavailable as well as for distributing the load.
