Subject: rejection from DNS configuration?

I just got this rejection:

19:27:27 4 SMTP-312([]) Input Line: EHLO\r
19:27:27 4 SMTP-312( Looking for
19:27:27 4 SMTP-312( Sending is pleased to meet you\r\n250-HELP\r\n250-PIPELINING\r\n250-ETRN\r\n250 EHLO\r\n
19:27:28 4 SMTP-312( Input Line: MAIL From:<>\r
19:27:28 1 SMTP-312( Return-Path-MX Search Error. Error Code=-3211
19:27:28 4 SMTP-312( Sending 572 <> cannot be accepted: DNS Error\r\n

The problem seems to be that <> is a CNAME for <>, which is a CNAME for <>. That's unusual, and possibly illegal. Will that cause SIMS to reject the email?

Is there any way to make SIMS accept this email without disabling my spam protection?
