If this postfix is relaying to another server, it doesn't know that the
address is not valid on the other server until it tries to deliver it
unless you configure it to call ahead to verify the address. I think
you can do that if you want, but this is entirely a postfix question
in any case and would be better pursued on a postfix list.
