Hi,

What exactly do you mean by PDC and BDC? I'm not familar with Exchange or sendmail. I use postfix for email myself, and I do know you can use heartbeat with two servers, where as one is active and one is standby, and the active one dies the standby one will take over. You should be able to do this with sendmail as well.

You can easily have a secondary MX that will queue mail while the primary is down. However, you would not be able to retrieve mail in that case. I'm confused as "PDC" and "BDC" don't have anything to do with Exchange itself...
