This issue is best dealt with in the postfix mailing list; however, there
are a few things required to have any hope of understanding what is going
0) which version of postfix are you running (you didn't indicate the
version of centos)
1) postconf -n
2) are you running any of the daemons in chroot (see master.cf)
3) grep 553E01079AD /var/log/maillog
Finally, I am not exactly sure what problem you are seeing (I didn't send
any data, but I appeared to pass the check that you were seeing). So, I
don't think that this is a postfix problem, but rather a transient DNS
issue (which is why postfix responded with a temporary error (451) which
causes a retry). Troubleshoot your DNS plant, and not your SMTP plant.
