Correct. Sorry for the typo.

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