$ cat /etc/exim4/hubbed_hosts
realnechayev.zugschlus.de: nechayev.zugschlus.de
foo.zugschlus.de:               nechayev.zugschlus.de

$ exim -bt test at domain2.organisation
R: domain_literal for test at domain2.organisation
R: hubbed_hosts for domain2.organisation
test at domain2.organisation
  router = hubbed_hosts, transport = remote_smtp
  host []
  host []

I cannot reproduce this here, things just work fine.

Can you give debug output of exim -d -bt something at domain2.organisation?
