I think domain1.com will be better in case of multiple mail servers
(MX records) serving a single domain.

I don't now if this is possible, but what of some kind of dynamic variable
to the -U option, for example: "dccm -U userdirs/%domainname" which dccm
will translate
to userdirs/domain1.com/local/user and userdirs/domain2.com/local/user
