Probably there is at least *one* recipient for each of these mails the
mail can not immediately be delivered to. Your MTA (Exim, I presume?)
will try to deliver the mail to those recipients as long as the retry
limit you set in its configuration is not reached (about 4-5 days,
normally) before bouncing the mail back.
