Exchange Server Dual Virtual Servers and SMTP Connectors

I have and Exchange Org with 4 routing groups. I understand that SMTP connectors take precedence over virtual servers. Is that the case for the whole org or just the routing group. It would seem that is the case for the whole org as is whats happening in mine. I created an SMTP connector in one routing group and now all my mail seems to go through that connector which i understand for that routing group, i just did not think it would take over mail for all my routing groups. Which by the way have their own mx record,NAT on my firewall, and they are their own bridgehead. Now my question in all this is that in order to send mail from all my site's routing groups, do i need to create a smtp connector in each site? Now the complexity comes in with we have this product that is already using the default virtual server in each site. The second part of my question is do i need to create a second virtual server with it's own ip address and then use that for the new smtp connector fo send out.
