I don't think you need any changes here. I'm not sure what the
+secondarymx entry matches, but the default

*                      *           F,2h,15m; G,16h,1h,1.5; F,4d,8h

says retry every 15 minutes for 2 hours, then at intervals starting at
one hour and increasing by a factor of 1.5 until 16 hours have passed,
then every 6 hours up to 4 days, after which if the message is still not
delivered, it is bounced.

This is a common strategy and should be OK.
