The SPF rejection was generated by the recipient's mail server, not any of Debian's infrastructure; mailly simply relayed it back to you.

This is a known issue with the combination of SPF and mail forwarding - the recipient's mail server would have received a mail claiming to be from you that originated from Debian's mail server, as it forwarded the mail. This is likely resolvable by the recipient configuring their checks to either ignore the Debian forwarding hop (which should be doable in most setups I believe) or not performing SPF checks on mail forwarded to them.
