Alert question

Your partner opens 1NT (15-17), you bid 2NT, agreed upon as a transfer to diamonds.  Your partner alerts and upon being asked by RHO says that this shows clubs. He then bids 3.  Your agreement is that this is a pre-acceptance of diamonds. With your 2 count, a  3 bid is clear.  Clearly, after the auction, and before opening lead, I will explain what happened.

My question is-  should I alert 3, and what do I say if asked?  It seems clear to me that the only possible outcome if I alert is to "wake partner up".  If I don't alert, that feels wrong too. 

Alert 3C and explain your agreement if asked
Don't alert but bid 3D anyway
