Hmmm.... I read it as this:

MUST accept: server returns a 250
failure to do so: server returns a 5xx or 4xx

I think the paragraph refers to the situation in which a server accepts
a message with 250, and then subsequently finds it is unable to deliver
the message.  While this is not a desirable situation, it's sometimes
impossible to avoid.
