When I now try to send a mail locally and offline, the mail is rejected

The fragments of log entries in your mail show your mail being accepted
instead of rejected.

Dccm caches only the IP addresses and round trip times to DCC servers.


That suggests that you have configured dccm to accept whitelisting
by sendmail.

Depending on how you have configured sendmail and dccm, 
when no DCC servers answer, mail is either accepted or temporarily
rejected.  Comments in the dcc.m4 feature file say how to choose which.
