In this case, the MTA must accept a recipient list that long (in his
case, 30K).  With Postfix, the directive would be (I think) :

    lmtp_destination_recipient_limit = 30000

I don't know if Cyrus have a similar, corresponding config directive or
if lmtpd just accept as many recipient as there is.
