[svlug] sendmail + 2nd MX

Since this list is so damn quiet, I thought I'd ask an easy question
which comes up so frequently in a google search that I can't trust the
quality of the answers.

I've set up my dns server to point my secondary MX to a box running
sendmail.  How do I tell sendmail on the secondary to deal with these
posts if the first mail server fails?

>From what I've read, I just tell sendmail on the secondary to "allow
relay" for the primary mail host.  Is that right?
