You could even considere to use a 4xx type for RBL's in the MTA. Any
decent SMTP server will just resend the message a bit later. Or contact
your backup server. But most direct spam senders will not retry or go to
your backup server so it may be a good trade-off
But in my experience one can not tackle this unless you kill a
significant part of your spam at the MTA level.
