You can argue both ways.  But for the sake of simplicity, just tell him that
it did come from MSN.  If he needs a detailed explanation, then you need to
explain to him the way that mail works.  The message goes to your server,
which then attempts to contact the remote server (MSN in this case).  It
tells the remote server who the mail is coming from, and the address it is
sending to, at which point, in this case, the MSN server responded back,
saying, that recipient address is invalid, or doesn't exist here, or
something similar, however you want to understand it.  It then says I can't
accept the message because you are attempting to send to a recipient I don't
recognize, and rejects the message.  Then, your server returns the response
from the System Administrator to the originator (your boss), stating that I
attempted to deliver the message to the requested recipient, and failed.  Is
that a better explanation?  If you want to see how it works, then open up a
telnet session to your mail server (or a remote mail server for that matter)
and get familiar with the commands.  That is all mail servers do to talk to
each other.

I understand that, but the response my boss received led him to believe he
received the ndr from our internal server.

That is the MSN sys admin message.  They're not people you know, it's all
computers talking to each other.

But why wouldn't it just send it to MSN, and then have the MSN Sys Admin
send me a message telling me the account doesn't exist.

Because your server tried to send the mail and it failed with user unknown.
MSN thought you'd like to know.
