In fact I now get it reliabily for many clients. Reverting
pkgsrc/mail/sendmail/patches/* to its content prior this upgrades
and running make makepatchsum fixes the problem.

The bug is therefore not in sendmail-8.14.9 but in the pkgsrc patches
we apply to it. The change is about using re-entrant resolver and
IPv6 resolution, and it is quite intrusive. Was that submitted upstream
to sendmail maintainers?
