Default reportbug tries to relay through fiordland.ubuntu.com which does not work

Package: reportbug
Version: 3.39ubuntu3
Severity: important

reportbug's default configuration attempts to send mail via a system
that does not accept mail, throwing away bug reports.

reportbug ships with a reportbug.conf:

# Use this to enable the internal MTA (bypassing /usr/sbin/sendmail)
# smtphost localhost
# You can also specify a port other than 25
smtphost fiordland.ubuntu.com

Allowing it to try send mail through there, I get:

Connecting to fiordland.ubuntu.com via SMTP...
SMTP send failure: {'ubuntu-users@lists.ubuntu.com': (554, '5.7.1 <ubuntu-users@
lists.ubuntu.com>: Relay access denied'), 'jhawk@MIT.EDU': (554, '5.7.1 <jhawk@M
IT.EDU>: Relay access denied')}
Wrote bug report to /tmp/reportbug-cron-20090112-31681-PtWxSC

This is not really an acceptable set of defaults. This machine
has a valid SMTP configuration of its own, but even when reportbug
was told it could use it, it chose not to.
