Either the recipients mail systems mis-processed and lost the email,
or the next SMTP relay (maybe your ISP, I do not know your
configuration) managed to loose the email, otherwise your boss would
have received an NDR.

Has this EVER happened before with your mail systems?

Mail systems are designed by humans, so they are obviously not
perfect. Things get even worse when you throw these anti-spam systems
with a high-rate of false positives into the mix.

What do your mail logs say? 250 message accepted?
