I *think* it is the access file that takes precedence. But I don't know, 
I have entries like
CONNECT: domain
in the last sendmail installation I have. But I'm not sure if it ever 
worked. We switched about the same time away from SORBS as it was giving 
too many FPs and the problem with the blocked mail servers went away.
