If your machines are fully capable then they will have permanent IP addresses 
and no spam ever coming from them.  In which case they will never get listed 
in a DNSBL (*) and there is nothing to be concerned about.

(*)  SPEWS level 2 and other excessively agressive DNSBL's may list you, but 
don't worry about that.  No-one has suggested that we use such DNSBL's.  We 
are talking about the simplest and most conservative ones that just list open 
relays etc.
