A backup policy will automatically generate a backup in the origin AWS region. If you require a cross-account backup to another of your AWS accounts, we provide the functionality to do this.

When you choose the ADVANCED Option from the main backup policy section, Simply, click on the check box and select the chosen AWS account and region you would like to save the additional backup copy.

This will then save the additional copy in your chosen account and the retention of these snapshots in your additional account will be the same as outlined in your backup policy.
