Yes, it is Sendmail.

Correct. Sorry for the typo.

That makes sense. So to restate then, the difference between the two  
is that…

1.	entries in /etc/aliases will apply to all domains on the system
	since the entry on the left is just a username (and not a
	complete email address), whereas entries in /etc/mail/virtusertable
	are complete email address

2.	you can direct the mail sent into a script via a pipe in /etc/aliases


…correct?
