well I decreased the SMTP_MAX_RCPTS to only 5 (five) and when checking the 
mailq every now and then .. some of the 18 servers gave the following:

-Queue ID- --Size-- ----Arrival Time---- -Sender/Recipient-------
335BB14BB8CA   111316 Wed Jan 26 09:04:29  MAILER-DAEMON
                                                (unknown mail transport 

and some of them:

-Queue ID- --Size-- ----Arrival Time---- -Sender/Recipient-------

                                                     (system resource 

I kept rebooting the servers every while to get the mail moving .. and so 
far I received 27 messages out of 57 lists ..

I'll raise it to 10 and try again..

any thoughts ?

All the settings default values and their documentation is in

# Ceiling on the number of recipients that can be specified in a single
# transaction.  Set to 0 to submit the entire recipient list in one
# transaction.  Only used with the SMTPDirect DELIVERY_MODULE.
