I think it is a bug that the load of zone A affects the reported load in zone B thereby causing a process in zone B (sendmail) to make bad decisions that are based on perceived load average.
I have always been a little unclear on _how_ the load _statistic_ is managed by the system. There doesn't seen to be a tool to track it over time (other than things like SunMC). It doesn't (directly) appear in sar data, not vmstat output. I assume the reason there is not a 'per non-global zone' load value, is that there is really only one kernal with one scheduler and one run queue. I think load is defined as the number of runnable and running processes at any given point in time. I assume each process is tagged with the zone it belongs to (zoneid 0 being the global zone), in which, would it be possible to create a load value for each zoneid ?
