This is close.  If you want to fallback to cisco relay in the event NSE based T38 fails, then you may want to use this instead:

voice service voip
fax protocol t38 nse ls-redundancy 0 hs-redundancy 0 fallback cisco

This command:  "fax protocol cisco" means that you want cisco fax relay as the primary fax protocol, which you do not.  The above will set Cisco fax relay as a fallback/secondary option.

You can set the low speed and high speed redundancy levels to the appropriate values for your environment.

The "fax-relay sg3-to-g3" is fine.

It should be noted that since you are using NSE-based T.38 on the VG-224 that any other gateways which will participate in a fax-relay transmission with the VG-224 must support NSE-based T.38 or the call may fail (or fall back to cisco fax relay).

Here is the SCCP config guide for fax:

Based on your listing of commans, I suspect you have the above doc.

Here is an excellent fax/modem document that you may want to keep in your back pocket:
