sendmail mail.log fields: what do they mean?

I am on an hpux machine, and am looking at the sendmail mail.log file: what do the following fields mean?

AA178207109: size=3021, class=0, pri=4021, nrcpts=1

I am MOST interested in what the nrcpts means (in detail, --I already assume it means non-receipts)...

Thanks!

AA178207109 is the message ID. Size is the size of the message in bytes. Class is the numeric precedence of the message. PRI means the initial message priority. NRCPTS means number of receipts after all of the aliasing and forwarding has finished.

Thanks!

The reason I am asking, is that I have a sendmail situation:

I have two hpux boxes (box1 and box2) that have identical .cf files and are set up to send all emails to box3 (as a relay host). Box2 works fine. It sends its mail to box3 and disconnects.

Box1 sendmail however, sends its email to box3 and then waits till box3 passes the email to the remote email host box.

Like I said the .cf files look identical. How do I troubleshoot this? I used sendmail verbose mode to verify the above situation.
What would you look for?

Thanks for your help!
