sendmail error code 451 503

Running /var/spool/mqueue/l9TFu20P016658 (sequence 2 of 2)
>>> RSET
250 Reset OK
<>... Using cached ESMTP connection to via esmtp...
>>> MAIL From:<> SIZE=14027
250 OK
>>> RCPT To:<>
>>> DATA
451 lowest numbered MX record points to local host
<>... Deferred: 451 lowest numbered MX record points to local host
503 valid RCPT command must precede DATA

>> lowest numbered MX record points to local host
I've checked that the MX record is good!

What's the meaning of "valid RCPT command must precede DATA" please? how can I fix these two errors please?
