You converted the access.db with:
"makemap hash access.db < access"
I think it should be (from the cf. README):
[...]
Remember, since /etc/mail/access is a database, after creating the text
file as described below, you must use makemap to create the database
map.  For example:
	makemap hash /etc/mail/access < /etc/mail/access

As far as I understood it FEATURE(`blacklist_recipients') does not provide
the level of configuration control provided by the To: tag.

So what will happen if you only use
FEATURE(`access_db')
and add the following to your access database:

 To:root@			REJECT
 From:root@			REJECT
