Well, to make it easy to understand, an example:

*.customer.nl		IN	MX 10	relay.customer.nl
*.customer.nl		IN	MX 50	smtp.NL.net

	When customer.nl relay is down a lot of mail is spooled at
smtp.NL.net If there are a dozen of huge mails there, all the small
ones queued afterwards would get pretty delayed. Even if you reorder
your queue file by size, if some small mail received while you are
delivering your huge one they will get stuck there for a while. What
I need it to have parallel smtp sessions open.
