Again, sendmail does not do this. It cannot. There is no code in
sendmail to split up a queue as you describe, which is why programs like
bulk_mailer were written. sendmail 8.9 will include something like
this, but 8.8 and earlier do not do this.
This leaves two possibilities: a wrapper around sendmail, or a locally
hacked version. Try building your own sendmail from sources and
installing it in /usr/lib/sendmail (back up the one that is there) and
see if that helps.
If that fails... you might be having a problem with too frequent queue
runs, or multiple instances of sendmail trying to process the queue
simultaneously. Make sure you only have one instance of sendmail in
daemon mode, and increase the queue processing interval.
And if that still does not help... try comp.mail.sendmail.
