If this is the case then it goes to show how much better milter-ahead is 
as it actually verifies that the remote-end is capable of rejecting 
invalid recipients to prevent continual call-aheads to a host that isn't 
capable.  You can then check the cache database (easy if you use the 
SQLite3 DB) and get a list of the servers that can't do this.
