It sounds like you are saying that you are sending mail out with a
return address of a.x.y.z, where x.y.z exists in the public DNS, but
a.x.y.z does not. If so, then this is indeed a local configuration
problem as you are sending e-mail out with an invalid return address.
Look up masquerade in /usr/share/sendmail/README.
