If you're the sort of person that has a secretary send email for you
(probably less common now than when the RFCs were drafted, but still...)
then you'd want the bounce to go to the secretary and have them deal
with it, since you're clearly too busy for such minutiae.

As such, I'd say if Sender is present, always prefer it over From,
regardless of how many From addresses there are. This will hold
true even if you don't have a secretary. If you've specified a
Sender, I can't imagine why you'd want bounces to go elsewhere.
