Sendmail will not do this for you.  MailMan can be persuaded to, but
I wouldn't bother.  A better choice is to use a better MTA than
Sendmail, which has better (faster and more optimised) delivery and
queue running functionality than Sendmail.  Two good choices are:

  Exim      http://www.exim.org/
  Postfix   http://www.postfix.org

Unlike Sendmail, such efficient MTAs will automatically order the
messages they deliver in the most efficient fashion.
