We experience the same problems. One server works, the other one
doesn't. They are two completely different machines and domains, though.

We use ejabberd on both servers, and there are two differences in s2s
configuration, and I think (haven't had time to try it out though) one
of them probably is the problem:

jabber.at (non-working) sets
	"{outgoing_s2s_options, [ipv6, ipv4], 10000}."
while jabber.fsinf.at does not set any s2s options.

jabber.at has
	"{s2s_use_starttls, required}."
while jabber.fsinf.at has
	"{s2s_use_starttls, true}."
... which probably is an old form of the same. "true" no longer is a
valid option in the new docs, so I am unsure what happens there (it may
be handled as "optional" or so?")
