For what it's worth, I use MailScanner with no RBLs at the MS level, only in SA.
I run a local DNS server, and I periodically see this in netstat -anp:
udp 8736 0 127.0.0.1:33867 127.0.0.1:53 ESTABLISHED
which is the MailScanner process connecting to the local DNS server, presumably
for SA RBL lookups.
