Which email address are people using to send email to this server if it isn't configured to handle mail for a particular domain?

Is this related to the this problem you reported recently? If so, tell us the answers to the questions asked of you in that thread.

Which address are you using as the sending address? Check the "From" and/or "Reply-To" headers of the mail. That's where a reply would go to.

The From address is used to send replies to; if it doesn't exist, of course the mail bounces.

Furthermore, the xyz.com domain exists; the people who run it might not like you messing around with it (not to mention that they might have set up a catch-all email account that would happily accept whatever you send there WITHOUT bouncing it).

ya
I think this problem is because of the IP which i am useing is not having DNS registration.
so can i use ddd.ddd.dd.d insted of xyz.com will it work if they replay for chiru@ddd.ddd.dd.d

It might work, if that IP address is visible from the outside world (in other words, it won't work with a NAT-ed address). That's easy enough to test, though.
