What happens if I point an MX record to the wrong mailserver?

I was wondering what happens if I do the following? 
1) Create a new domain, "junk.com". 

2) Point the DNS MX record for Junk.com to my mailserver at
BUT...The domain name at E-Rice.Net is "mydomain.com". 

3) Create a mailbox on my mailserver named "test" (test at mydomain.com) 

4) Send mail to test at junk.com 
Will the mail be received into the "test" mailbox at "mydomain.com",
or will it be rejected?
