postfix malformed response error?

I found my mail server stop working (postfix 2 in sarge 3.1) and i look up mail.log i got the following error. But i dont understand what it mean exactly. Could it be i change my hostname? Can someone explain to me what it mean and potential cause of such errror? (eg, am i under attack ?)

After a few restart relaoad + postqueue -f (force to flush), the problem go away. BUt i dono if it a correct fix.
