Virtual aliasing is recursive, so the above mapping should be fine as
long as someone_else@virtual_domain.com is eventually mapped to an
actual mailbox/address. This is why the OP observes that it "works" in
the sense that test mail arrives in the intended mailbox.

As noted in the ADDRESS_REWRITING_README, virtual alias mapping affects
*only* the envelope recipient address, not the headers.
