This will be the magic bit, and the syntax looks right, so
best guess is that you placed it in the wrong place.

Compare that file with:

http://exim.org/exim-html-current/doc/html/spec_html/ch-the_smtp_transport.html#SECID146

You're trying to add an option on the transport definition
for your smarthost. What I don't know is if that's the right
file for Debian these days; with luck comments in it may help.
Alternatively, the Debian config-helper may know about
SSL-on-connect configurations for smarthosts already; you may
not need ot do it manually.
