Three servers with one domain name

How can I have 3 domino mail servers--one in the US, one in Singapore and onein UK--having only one domain name?

I have the MX record in my DNS as follows:

domain.com IN MX 10 US.domain.com
domain.com IN MX 20 SG.domain.com
domain.com IN MX 30 UK.domain.com


You either need to have one domain that will do all the mail routing into one server, then that server sending the mail to the other servers--or 3 different domains with the users on those servers having email addresses in those domains.
