The test is wrong, not your config.  It only checks that the RCPT TO:
is accepted.  If it had continued on to actually attempt to send a
message, the message would have been bounced.  exim just catches this
manner of relaying a little later on in the process (after the SMTP
connection has been closed, IIRC).
