I found a section more relevant to your topic:


> if the JID is of the form <user at domain>
> and there is at least one available resource available for the user, [...]
> 1. For message stanzas, the server
> SHOULD deliver the stanza to the highest-priority available resource
> [...] or MAY deliver the message to all such resources.

As you can see, the protocol gives two alternatives,
and ejabberd implements the SHOULD, not the MAY.

> Is there such a thing in ejabberd?

I didn't find any related ticket or patch for that.

You could modify ejabberd source code to implement the MAY alternative,
and then also make it configurable.
