smtpd_peer_init: warning in posfix log?


i run the most recent postfix rpm from fedora core 2. I am getting some unusual warnings in my /var/log/maillog related to smtpd_peer_init: 219.91.118.152: hostname NK219-91-118-152.adsl. I googled this but only got one hit in spanish. Can someone please tell me what they think is happening?

The log looks like this like this:
# cat /var/log/maillog | grep 219.91.118.152

Reverse DNS record for IP address didn't match. Good check.
Remote scumbag tried relaying, your box denied. Good result.
