This sounds like an anitspam tactic to me. Messages addressed to multiple recipients are deferred, since a lot of spammers won't try sending a deferred message again; It's not worth their time or resources to keep track of deferred messages, and then go back and retry them. A legitimate mail will go through, just not until your MTA sends it a second time, upon which their servers will most likely accept it.
