I'd agree, I run my own mail server and I've had two or three of these
messages over the last few years, which don't repeat.
I have no spam filtering at all, I just don't accept mail from some
countries, ISPs and CIDR blocks. Those things don't change from day to
day or message to message, and when the rejection message has arrived,
I've never found a log of the rejection in my server. So the problem is
an occasional one with the list servers or their connectivity.
