You have to have single static public IP address through which all your devices / printers can send communication to O365 relay

The IP address is essentially should be on firewall and this IP should be used as source IP address for all outbound SMTP traffic
It means when O365 receive relay mail requests, it will look for source IP where it should find this IP

If you already have any SMTP outbound gateway IP, you can use that
