Referring to Mailman 2.1.x.

If the list is set send personalized mail then a separate message is 
sent out (passed to the outgoing MTA) for each subscriber, for each 
posting to the list.

If list is not set to send personalized mail then the same message goes 
to each subscriber (assuming you are using the default SMTPDirect mail 
transport) but the number of SMTP transactions to pass a given message 
to the outgoing MTA will depend on the number of members and the value 
of Mailman's SMTP_MAX_RCPTS configuration variable (normal install 
default is 500): check in Defaults.py for more info, assign a different 
value to it in mm_cfg.py if you need to.
