Your case is when the node can be reached via multiple routes. I can not
think of anything that won't lead to full-featured routing system, at
least that exists in FTN-like networks. And I do not wish to do that
kind of complicated things. NNCP is by simplicity design uses static
manually setup routes. Multiple recipients won't help there: it could
help, with transitional packet inside, only if there is not more than
one hop between. So I have got no thoughts how can simply and
beautifully solve you case. It is too complicated for NNCP, as well as
UUCP too.

I will write nncp-trns (transition, that "trns" is already used in many
places in NNCP) utility for wrapping/redirecting packets through another
