But, I want to avoid that configuration.

In vpopmail FAQ (http://www.inter7.com/vpopmail/FAQ.txt) say:

22. How do I forward all email to a different site?
   Edit the .qmail-default file and put in:
   | /home/vpopmail/bin/vdelivermail '' $e...@newdomain.com
   This will forward all non matching emails to u...@newdomain.com

No problem if they are different domains but each of my qmail has the
same domain in my /var/qmail/rcpthosts and not same users.

I need that when you send mail from us...@mydomain.com (in server1) to
user us...@mydomain.com (in server2) qmail delivery mail to another

what option I can use in my .qmail-default file....?  something like

  | /home/vpopmail/bin/vdelivermail '' $EXT@anotherserverIP_or_variable

i looked "environments variables" on

One way to do this would be to use subdomains for each place, ie place1.mydomain.com, place2.mydomain.com, place3.mydomain.com. Set up the users with 'real' accounts in their proper subdomain. Also create appropriate MX records for each subdomain. In the primary domain, set up all users as forwards to their subdomain.

This does have a drawback in that in its simplest implementation, all email goes to the central/primary server first, then on to the appropriate subdomain. This might be avoided by replicating the primary domain to each of the subdomains (you'll need vpopmail configured with separate tables per domain for this), and having a local DNS resolver on each subdomain that points the MX for the primary domain to itself.

I haven't actually done the replication part of this, but I have set up a few subdomains. I think it would work, but of course YMMV.
