Note that there are TWO relevant RFCs: RFC 4409 and RFC 5068. The latter
says:

3.1.  Best Practices for Submission Operation

   Submission Authentication:

      MSAs MUST perform authentication on the identity asserted during
      all mail transactions on the SUBMISSION port, even for a message
      having a RCPT TO address that would not cause the message to be
      relayed outside of the local administrative domain.
