qmail does it...But you still need to efficiently queue the mail for forwarding. You can't just make separate connections to the target for each recipient.The claim is that making separate connections is usually faster (fewer round-trip delays) because of how SMTP works. It does use more bandwidth but this is unlikely to be significant on most sites, most of the time.
These days however, when people send attachments megabytes in size (or viruses do it for them), I don't know whether that claim is still true.
a. central coordination instance b. MX/A lookups for all domain parts of all mails c. choose one MX d. now find all mails which could potentially be sent there e. weed out rejects f. start over
