Consider that likely much more than half the impact is going to be from
the MTA rather than Mailman. Perhaps you should be asking on a list
specific to your MTA.
I would suggest at a minimum that you could reduce your Mailman impact
by breaking up your list into perhaps 240 roughly equal sub-lists and
sending the post to one list at a time at 6 minute intervals. Then if
your system can complete delivery of the post from one sub-list to its
8500+- members in under 6 minutes, you should be OK.
