The main difference is when you are using MaxDaemonChildren to limit
load, and your sendmail is almost always at the limit. Then queue
runs are not started (due to MaxDaemonChildren). But a separate
queue daemon would not count as a daemon child, and would continue to
initiate queue runs.
The other time it makes a difference is if you also use the "-C"
command line option to give the two different configurations.
