If you do an external rewrite to a new domain, do subdirectories of the old domain transfer to the new?

Example:
Rewrite /domain1 [domain2.com...]

Assuming domain1 has a subdirectory is this true?

domain1.com/adirectory/ <rewrite> ===> domain2.com/adirectory/

scorpion,

Yes, Redirect uses prefix-matching; subdirectories and filenames not specified in the left-side pattern are added onto the URL on the right side.

It's actually harder if you don't want to keep the path - you have to use RedirectMatch.
