Afaik you will have to create a custom plugin to amavis.
The first thing would be to create a custom policy bank with the bad_header 

$policy_bank{'NOBADH'} = { 
   bypass_header_checks_maps => [1],  # don't header-check this mail  

Then using a custom plugin the only thing is check the subject and if it 
matches load the policy:
