Setting SMTP_MAX_RCPTS is basically what you need to adequately communicate 
with your local MTA.

Your local MTA should be handling whatever is required to split envelopes 
into smaller chunks, if that is what the remote MTA is requiring.  If the 
remote MTA is throttling you based on the total number of recipients in a 
unit of time (and not the number of messages), then your local MTA should 
also be handling appropriate retransmissions to get your traffic through at 
a later time.

If your local MTA is not doing this for you, then you might want to look at 
changing the configuration of your MTA, or maybe getting a different one.
