dnsbl is actually an agregate of multiple BLs.  The reject message
should of told you which one (or the lookup will).

For example, the rmst list will block a /24 if there are two confirmed
sources of spam. I didn't think any of the T1 lists did that.

In any case, your email was rejected because the administrator of that
remote server thought it was a good idea and they are quite entitled to
doing that.
