This would usually happen when the message has multiple receipients, at least
one of which is configured to have spam delivered. Since mailscanner does as
little as possible to the messages themselves, they must either be delivered
to all recipients or to none -- so in this case they would be delivered to all.

If that's not what's happening here, *shrug*...
