I think it should read something like this:

      In either case, a formal handoff of responsibility for
      the message occurs: the protocol requires that a server
      MUST accept responsibility for either delivering a
      message or properly reporting the failure to do so.

      A proper failure report SHOULD consist of a notification sent
      to the Return-Path of the original message.  Where this is not
      possible (because of a blank Return-Path) or not desirable
      (because the Return-Path is untrusted for local policy
      reasons), the server MUST record enough information for a
      human operator to reconstruct the nature of the delivery
      failure, the original Return-Path and the addresses of the
      original recipients.

   Sending an NDN in the case where MailFrom is blank is already
prohibited (isn't it?); so that clause is not necessary. Other than
that, I could live with this.
