Selectively bypassing Bayes

I'm fighting a lot of joe-job blowback from Russia (still), and have been posting to the spamassassin list for some help. I enabled/configured the VBounce ruleset but it was suggested to me that I use that as a trigger to quarantine the messages but to not feed them to Bayes, since it could skew the results of legitimate NDRs. It was suggested that I use procmail to pre-sort the messages. My MailScanner boxes are just gateways, forwarding to an internal Exchange server and doesn't have any local mailboxes so I don't think procmail is the right tool. (If I'm wrong let me know.)
I have a custom rule that examines the headers for .ru and ANY_BOUNCE_MESSAGE which comes from the VBounce ruleset. How to I tell MailScanner and/or spamassassin not to feed those messages to Bayes but still block them? Or can I even do that?
