QMAIL DOES NOT deliver to root. That is a security issue. Instead it
delivers to the ~alias/.qmail-postmaster .qmail file if you have installed
qmail from the debianized source, and .qmail-root if you have installed on
your own. But there is no way you can make qmail to deliver to a user
whose directory is owned by root.
