Why don't you just use sendmail to trow them away? As others already
pointed that out, you could provision your primary access database(s) to
the secondary (or make the secondary use the primary's access.db over a
TCP socket) and have sendmail do the rejecting without bothering MIMEDefang.

Doing so with MIMEDefang via md_check_against_smtp_server would impose
additional overhead (especially on high volume servers) and useless log
