Set up a local dns server, and add an entry for the local server.

That error indicates that the domain in the email address -- in your example -- is not resolvable by the exchange server. The problem is not with the unix server. The exchange server has to be able to "see"

If this is a test setup, add to the exchange server's hosts file. Check the MS site for the location on your version of Windows, I'm not sure where it's located.

If a "live" situation, then does not have the correct DNS setting to receive MX record in the zone - if that's the case, no one can send mail to it, not just exchange.
