It doesn't matter for mechanical purposes. To, CC, and BCC are all
routed the same way (using RCPT TO aka "envelope recipient" at the
SMTP level), and To and CC are handled the same way by almost all
receiving MUAs (BCC is, of course, as invisible to the receiving MUA
as it is to the human).
So To is your target, and CC is the innocent bystander, and BCC are
the sniggerers in the peanut gallery, as always.
