Please see MailScanner.conf:

# If this is "no", then (as far as possible) messages which have already
# been processed by another MailScanner server will not have the clean
# signature added to the message. This prevents messages getting many
# copies of the signature as they flow through your site.
# This can also be the filename of a ruleset.
Sign Messages Already Processed = no

It relies on the "Mail Header" setting being the same across all your
MailScanner servers.
