Just to understand the terminology here, my VM would act as a
'primary' MX host and 'remote site' is my home machine, right?

This link only shows VM side of configs. How about on the home machine
postfix side?

Also, if my domain is mail.exmaple.com, which machine's postfix should
have that set? VM or home?

A mail should be originated from "mail.example.com" right?

Thanks for taking the time and responding,
