So the vacation reply should go to root at server.domain.

By the time cyrus gets the message, you have lost the envelope sender
and envelope recipients. So you can't send any type of delivery status
notice correctly, whether vacation replies, bounces, or receipts. It
looks like you can't deliver bcc'd messages either, if you are trying
to guess recipients by reading headers.
Anyway none of this is a cyrus problem. I'm out of here.
