Comment (by dx):

 Is this the same log when it said "Unknown Host"? All I see is "Server
 closed the connection"

 I tried setting my system date to the future and connecting to that
 server, got this:

 >Accept certificate for jabber.passys.nl?
 >The certificate for jabber.passys.nl could not be validated.
 >The certificate claims to be from "ejabberd" instead. This could mean
 that you are not connecting to the service you believe you are.
 >The certificate is not trusted because no certificate that can verify it
 is currently trusted.
 >The certificate has expired and should not be considered valid.  Check
 that your computer's date and time are accurate

 Which looks completely normal. Honestly this sounds like a server
 misconfiguration, not an issue with pidgin.
