Debian docu says i should do it this way:

CHECK_RCPT_DOMAIN_DNSBLS = zen.spamhaus.org/$sender_address_domain : dnsbl.sorbs.net/$sender_address_domain

but it does not work. my dialup ip is listed on dnsbl.sorbs.net but i can telnet to the mx and leave a message. not even a 'warning' header listed or something...

I think you want to set the CHECK_RCPT_IP_DNSBL entry. Something like CHECK_RCPT_IP_DNSBL = zen.spamhaus.org should work. I believe zen includes the sorbs list now. The domain blocklist is for domains like example.com not IP addresses.
