Thanks for the help Jeremy, 
They're vpopmail aliases, if that makes any difference? 
How would one eliminate the duplicate messages with procmail or maildrop?
Is there a "best" way?

assuming you're talking about 'forwards' of course this will happen.

when a .qmail file with a '&' delivery instruction (forward) is encountered,

qmail-local queues a new message with the recipient.  This will cause the 
qmail-tap patch (or stock qmail with the QUEUE_EXTRA modification) to again 
process the extra recipient.

There is no way around this, however, there are methods of eliminating 
duplicate messages at delivery time (procmail, maildrop)
