It is pretty standard (and IIRC part of the SMTP RFCs) that the
forward and reverse DNS records must match. The PTR record does not
have to match the hostname, but it does have to resolve to a hostname
with an A record pointing back to the IP.
That lack of a PTR record for 220.127.116.11 will definitely cause
problems with any number of SMTP servers.
