I have not kept careful records, but to the best of my recollection whenever the "verification" e-mail is sent the main e-mail is also sent. I think a user reported earlier (Doughy?) some cases where the verification e-mail was sent but the main e-mail was never sent. If this is happening, it is not happening to the same degree as the error that we are discussing.
In the past, it has been common for me to get a verification email, even when the real email is not actually sent. However, this is random as well, or at least it used to be. I'm going to be sending out a ward email later today, so I'll see.
