That is not the reason why sendmail may be (or not) faster than SMTP.
Usually sendmail is faster because it directly injects the messages in
the local mailer queue, instead of going through a TCP connection.
If you can use sendmail there isn't really a good reason to use SMTP
instead if all you want it is speed.
