Any interesting activeity is reported with:
The debug class will not provide any more specific information
pertaining to rejects.
The manual.html has the regex for all SMTP responses returned by
milter-sender, so even if you disable milter-sender logging, you can
grep for sendmail log messages related to milter-sender.

There is a debug line from my milters related to rejects:
/milter-NAME.* reply /
You could change the message's class in:
smfLog(SMF_LOG_DEBUG, TAG_FORMAT "reply %s %s %s", TAG_ARGS, rcode,
make clean install
And restart milter-sender. Then you should be able to grep for the one
specifically interesting message related to rejects or special replies.

Since its control by an smf library function, I might added it as one of
the special undocumented options or change it permanently to SMF_LOG_INFO.
