You could create a Dedicated Send Connector for the Specific Domain. While creating the new Send Connector, you could add the Specific Domain Name in SMTP Address Space. You will have to specify the FQDN of SMTP Server for the Specific Domain in Add Smarthost option. And finally you could specify the Hub Transport Server which you want to use to route mails in Source Server Page.

Please refer the following article on how to create this Send Connector.

I did exactly that but I found that the email was not being delivered by the 2nd site's exchange server.
Does both Site1 and Site2 has connectivity to Internet?

Sorry for not responding.
Yes both had connectivity to the internet.
I will award you some points for feedback but the way I had solved this is to use my provider's smtp server for the subject domains.
