Not sure what might cause this. It might be a case where the server 
milter-sender attempts to contact drops the connection intentionally, 
either because it things you're a spammer or it itself is a spammer.

Either way, if the mail looks like its coming from someplace your might 
want to talk to, white list it. If you had more log info like

	-v info,trace
	-v info,trace,dialogue

then I could see more of whats going on. Like the domain and/or MX that 
is being contacted and test it manually.
