No, that's for rejecting *unknown* recipients.

Your server *did* reject with a 450 code, so the sending server should 
try to resend the message for the other recipient.

I don't think there's any way of making postfix close the SMTP 
connection at this stage. What is your postgrey delay set to?

postconf -n will show you a list of all non-default settings.
