If you are forwarding inbound mail to another ISP on behalf of someone, 
then backup-mx would be the correct option to use. The mail would then 
be accept and sit in your mail queue until it succeeds in being 
transferred or expires, default 5 days unless you have change the expire 
times of such things in sendmail as I have.

If you're talking outbound, then milter-ahead would not be the correct 
method, just let sendmail queue the message until it succeeds or expires.
