I used the machine smtp.sws.net.au to send an email to my @debian.org address.  
Below is part of the headers.  As you can see master.debian.org doesn't log

Received: from master.debian.org (master.debian.org [])
	by smtp.sws.net.au (Postfix) with ESMTP id 3BCC461B01
	for <russell@coker.com.au>; Fri, 24 Jun 2005 01:35:08 +1000 (EST)
Received: from smtp.sws.net.au [] 
	by master.debian.org with esmtp (Exim 3.35 1 (Debian))
	id 1DlTjO-0008KQ-00; Thu, 23 Jun 2005 10:35:07 -0500
