What do you mean by "get"?  I "get" both messages in my system
mailbox, but because I have duplicate suppression on in my MUA, I only
"see" one.  The MUA automatically skips any message with a Message-ID
that it has already seen.

I would assume you've got a similar feature, perhaps not in your MUA
but in the MDA or MTA.
