Just my 2c:

Often people use 'dnsbl.sorbs.net' as that's the example shown on the 
'Using SORBS' page.

Even the SORBS maintainer doesn't recommend using this list at the MTA 
level; instead the aggregate list 'safe.dnsbl.sorbs.net' is what is 
recommended as this zone does not include the 'recent' and 'escalations' 
zones.  See http://www.au.sorbs.net/using.shtml
