No, not questionable at all. In fact we do exactly that here. For mail
sent to specific domains (those of our parent company), we ignore the MX,
and force mail via a different route that goes via a private line, rather
than over the Internet. Thus we can send confidential data via email to
people in our parent company without needing to worry about encryption
(arguably, we should be doing that as well, but that's a hard battle to
win, and would need some kind of PKI that we just don't have right now).
