look at the value of parent_domain_matches_subdomains. It means every
subdomain of a relay domain is a relay domain, and since you have
relay_recipient_maps=, recipient validation is disabled for these
subdomains (except those that are in mydestination).

these defaults are historical and should be overriden if you don't need
compatibility...


but as you said, the postfix-users list is a better place...
