aliases only uses local accounts.  virtualaliases (IIRC is the
directive) will allow you to forward mail from any domain you accept
mail for to any other domain.  For example,

bill at   bill at
* clint at

the left column is for users and domains that you accept mail for.
The right column is the destination they will *actually* be sent to,
whether or not their on your machine.
