Maybe some qualification is needed here.

If your mail jail gets broken into, then it will still be used as a spambot.

But your host (the machine in which your jails run in) wouldn't have been 
compromised, necessarily, by the fact that the jail got compromised. Having 
root on a jail  (if that's what we are talking about by 'compromised' ) 
shouldn't affect your host machine. Unless there is some other vulnerability 
that can be used, of course.
