How do we reconcile that with:

      ... the protocol requires that a server
      MUST accept responsibility for either delivering a
      message or properly reporting the failure to do so.

If a server verifies the return path and decides not to use it, what
constitutes "...properly reporting the failure" to deliver a message?
