Since they are marked with an 'r', we can safely assume that they are
the distant host's responses. The "%" style of the messages is very
similar to VMS, so I'd bet it's a remote DEC VMS machine, probably
dumping core during your outgoing smtp chat with it.

(you might be able to cross ref the router log to see if a VMS host
 destination was logged close to the time in the smtp log)
