You don't. why on earth would you want to do that?

I will have several SMTP relay hosts in a load balance setup. The local MTA
on the mailman server will therefore only be handling email between it and
the SMTP relay host(s) on the same 100Mbit switch.

I may have phrased the question slighly wrong, I should have said "SMTP
relay" instead of "MTA servers" but I wis in a hurry, and I just wanted to
make it clear that I didn't need tips on optimising SMTP but rather on
Mailman itself...
