Here is an overview of the issue:
---------------------------------------------------------------------
        Key: JAMES-121
    Summary: MX records of equal priority should be randomized
       Type: Bug

     Status: Closed
 Resolution: FIXED

    Project: James
 Components: 
             James Core
   Versions:
             2.1

   Assignee: 
   Reporter: Rich

Environment: Operating System: Other
Platform: All

Description:
James does not randomize MX records of equal priority.

According to RFC 2821 section 5:
   If there are multiple destinations with the same preference
   and there is no clear reason to favor one (e.g., by recognition of an
   easily-reached address), then the sender-SMTP MUST randomize them to
   spread the load across multiple mail exchangers for a specific
   organization.
