Subject: Wrong error message ? DNS?

when i try to send a mail to an undefined account on my server, i get the

Failed to deliver your message to
SMTP: DNS Routing Loop
The Domain Name System record for ''
points back to ''.

But it should say, that the account is not defined.

I called my DNS specialist and he said, all is OK. There were no changes in
the DNS except the reverse lookup configuration for the IP address of the
mail server

What is wrong here?
