I was having a hard time following this, but if I've understood correctly,
then wouldn't this be what Peter wants:

  <info@ancientdomain.com> = Unknown

placed in the router before his

  ancientdomain.com = infoasis.com

line?  I use this for some names I want to work in the main domain, but not
in a second domain, and it seems to work fine.

Somebody isn't understanding somebody then, because that's what I've been
doing for a couple years.

My Sims default domain is caravel.bc.ca

Yet there is no info account, so info@caravel.bc.ca bounces.  Yet you could
pick another domain on our server, say, cubixinvestments.com

info@cubixinvestments.com works find because of two router entries (in this
order).
<info@cubixinvestments.com> = qbx-info
cubixinvestments.com = caravel.bc.ca

and there is a qbx-info account in SIMS
