why should mail be delivered to oth boxes?
Two MX Records do not mean that mail ist delivered to both targets.
Its just a redundancy thing.
If the MX with the lowest priority is unreachable, the second it tried.

you could check the imap aggregator.
but this thing sounds beeing a little overkill for you.

you might try to rewrite
boxa at to boxa at
boxb at to boxa at
and route the mail based on the subdomain.
