The number of delivery attempts syslog equate

The ntries equate shows the number of times delivery was attempted before final delivery could be achieved for an envelope, or before delivery couldn't be successfully achieved, resulting in the message being returned to the sender. When multiple envelopes are processed from the queue and are destined for the same host, only the first will be deferred and have its number of attempts incremented. The others will not be tried because the host is unavailable, and therefore will not have their number of attempts incremented. Thus, the ntries equate shows only actual attempts.

Note that the ntries= syslog equate is shown only for recipient records. Also note that the ntries= syslog equate will appear only if the LogLevel option (LogLevel) is set to 10 or above.
