many machine with foo.com listed in its /etc/mail/local-host-names will
receive the email ... which ever machine replied first

emails addressed to host.foo.com will only be received by host.foo.com
and other machines with foo.com might receive the email but will fwd to
host.foo.com when host.foo.com is less bz ( depending on which machine has
the higher mx priority ( lower mx number ) )

it's best to only have one mail server :-)
