Strange problem with Zmailer 2.99.25

I had one of my users come to me the other day because an email of his
bounced. When looking closer at the bounce message (the bounce used the
delivery template) the error that was being reported, was generated by a
completely unrelated host. Here is an excerpt from the bounce message
showing the error Zmailer reported (the names have been changed to
protect the innocent):

    <smtp some.other.host joe@some.other.host 211>: ...\
            <<- QUIT
            ->> 221 mailhost.host.one closing connection

Here is an excerpt from the smtp log which shows the error:

There was no other entries in the log which looked like they could have
caused the problem. Does anyone have any idea what might have caused the
problem? Any help would be appreciated.
