If you do not need the accounts then use virtual mailboxes, otherwise 
use (plain) aliases.

I alias all system accounts to root, and root to user accounts for 
administrators (i.e. me).  On my personal work-station I also have a 
virtual alias:

allan allan@vent

so mail send from this host to myself is delivered locally instead of 
sent to my central mail server (replyhost).
