postconf -e unknown_address_reject_code=550
Read the description of this setting - it will STILL return a 45x if
the error is _temporary_, whereas "temporary" is defined by your local
resolver library (this works very well in most cases).

ITYM "no MX- and no A-RR".

You can easily create a dedicated smtpd instance for injection of
mails generated by mailman. Have a look at
http://wiki.list.org/pages/viewpage.action?pageId=4030642 - I use
SMTPPORT = 10026 in /etc/mailman/mm_cfg.py and in
127.0.0.1:10026 inet n - - - - smtpd
