While you may view it as a waste of time, it is required by RFC.
Additionally, it is not receiving a "copy" of a NDR, it is the actual NDR. 


It is recommend to instead use your anti-spam software to trap and delete
those specific ones.


Remember people, if the war on spam was that easy, it would be over by now.

Depends what sort of attack it is. 

Sounds like an NDR attack. Therefore the first thing you should do is turn
off the option on the SMTP virtual server to receive a copy of NDRs. That is
usually a waste of time anyway.
