You can do what you want using mod_rewrite:

RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteRule ^/(.*) http://www.bar.com/$1 [R,L]
See https://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.2/rewrite/ for information on how to 
use mod_rewrite.

Alternatively, you could set up an ErrorDocument on your server to 
handle all 404 errors.  Have this ErrorDocument be a script that gets 
the URI path the user was trying to access from the REDIRECT_* 
environment variables and then prints HTTP response headers to redirect 
the user to the appropriate URL for www.bar.com.  For details, see 
https://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.2/custom-error.html
