The DNS checks are reliable. My DNS server has as much
chance of breaking as postfix, and it uses a local machine
server, so it is all in one boat. Anyway, given what I saw
today coming from bot nets in Korea, Turkey and Russia, I suspect
DNS rejects are just another back scatter method.
I think the best solution will be to change the bounce template
so that minimal content goes back.
