Sadly, that did not work. 

Cyrus default is domain1.tld
with users:

i.e. postmaster at domain1.tld, postmaster at domain2.tld, postmaster at domain3.tld

all going to INBOX of postmaster at domain1.tld but not to INBOXes in their
own domains.

However there are not any multiple redirect addresses in the virtual
alias maps file.
